    I've posted this interview several times, but here it is again. It's a sad and wonderful story.

    800 women were liberated on the last day of Passover, 1945, by elements of the 2nd Armored and 30th Infantry.

    it is indeed a very sad story and yet wonderful too. It produces a range of emotions we human's rarely experience. I found it not unlike the original Passover in a smaller form far from the Mid-East.

    My wife and I were just guess of a rather informal Seder, a wonderful evening with great friends, that lasted far to long but in hindsight not long enough. We talked, laughed, told stories and ate a literal feast, it even included the lost of a friend that made it a bit of an Irish wake. A rare event for us but left me thinking if only everyone could see each other in such a way.

    For an aging old agnostic Episcopalian Passover is one of my favorite times of the year. We felt honored to be invited and thoroughly included. Now a bit of goat cheese on matzo is divine !!!
