92nd Street Y

After Speaking today at the 92nd Street Y -- to the 60 + Senior crowd on Reconstructionism -- I met a survivor, Margot Freidlander -- who told me about hearing Leo Baeck speak in Thereisnstadt. What she said was this "People always tell shmaltzy stories of those who attempted to follow Jewish ritual in the camps but people do not realize that Baeck gave lectures on Jewish intellectual thought in the camps! On philosophy - That was what kept us going!"

A film-maker is working on a film of her life and the year and a half she was part of the Berlin Underground.
