1) We see in your documentary and your statements that you clearly forgive Dr. Josef Mengele which is a very hard thing to even think about. By researching and understanding why you are doing this, it makes a lot of sense and it is a great example towards all of us. But also there must be a great amount of people, especially Jews that will never forgive you for doing this. How do you deal with them?
Yes, there are many survivors who are very angry with me, I can’t change them, and I don’t want to go back and be a victim.
I try to explain but so far I have not been able to help them listen to my ideas.
2) There are many movies about “the final solution” and “Nazi Germany”. Do you think these movies portray the truth? Especially the movie Schindler’s List was a great hit and it made people learn a lot about the holocaust. What do you personally think about Oscar Schindler? He is a hero to a lot of people but some people claim that he was just thinking of himself…
I like The film Schindler’s List, it is close to the truth, and I think that Oscar Schindler was an average guy wanting to get rich from the war than he realized that people were being murdered, and that he could use his money to save people’s lives-this when he became a hero, and stopped thinking about himself, and became a hero in dedicating his life and money to save people.
3) You must be getting a lot of interview requests and a lot of classic questions. I can imagine how hard it can be to answer questions about your family or the lost of your loved ones. How do you deal with this? Doesn’t it hurt every time you answer these questions?
Yes, I do get a lot of questions for interviews. No, it is not difficult to answer any questions even about my family. After I forgave the Nazis, I stopped being a victim which made it a lot easier to come in touch with my past without difficulty. My past is part of who I am, and I like who I am-a person who has triumphed over my pain, but I remember with love my family that I lost.
