The Girl with An Apple… True Story!

The Girl With An Apple
(This is a true story and you can find out more by Googling:
Herman Rosenblat
August 1942. Piotrkow, Poland...
He had his Bar Mitzvah at age 75)

The sky was gloomy that morning as we waited anxiously.
All the men, women and children of Piotrkow’s Jewish Ghetto had been herded into a square.
Word had gotten around that we were being moved.
My father had only recently died from Typhus, which had run rampant through the crowded Ghetto. 

My greatest fear was that our
family would be separated. 

‘Whatever you do,’ Isidore, my eldest brother, whispered to me, ‘don’t tell them your age. Say you’re sixteen. I was tall for a boy of 11, so I could pull it off. That way I might be deemed valuable as a worker.

An SS man approached me, boots clicking against the cobblestones. He looked me up and down, and then asked my age. ‘Sixteen,’ I said.
He directed me to the left, where my three brothers and other healthy young men already stood.  

My mother was motioned to the right with the other women, children, sick and elderly people. I whispered to Isidore, ‘Why?’

He didn’t answer. 
I ran to Mama’s side and said I wanted to stay with her. ‘No, ‘she said sternly. ‘Get away. Don’t be a nuisance. Go with your brothers.’ 
She had never spoken so harshly before. But I understood: She was protecting me. She loved me so much that, just this once, she pretended not to… It was the last I ever saw of her.  

My brothers and I were transported in a cattle car to Germany...
We arrived at the Buchenwald Concentration Camp one night later and were led into a crowded barrack.
The next day, we were issued uniforms and identification numbers. ‘Don’t call me Herman anymore.’ I said to my brothers. ‘Call me 94983.’ 
I was put to work in the Camp’s Crematorium, loading the dead
into a hand-cranked elevator. I, too, felt dead. Hardened, I had become a number. 

Soon, my brothers and I were sent to Schlieben, one of Buchenwald’s sub-camps near Berlin... 
One morning I thought I heard my mother’s voice. ‘Son,’ she said softly but clearly, I am going to send you an angel.’
Then I woke up, just a dream,
a beautiful dream.
But in this place there could be no angels. There was only work, and hunger, and fear.

A couple of days later, I was walking around the camp, around the barracks, near the barbed-wire fence where the guards could not easily see. I was alone.
On the other side of the fence, I spotted someone: a little girl with light, almost luminous curls. She was half-hidden behind a birch tree. I glanced around to make sure no one saw me. I called to her softly in German. ‘Do you have something to eat?’

She didn’t understand.

I inched closer to the fence and repeated the question in Polish. She stepped forward. I was thin and gaunt, with rags wrapped around my feet, but the girl looked unafraid. In her eyes, I saw life.  

She pulled an apple from her woolen jacket and threw it over the fence. I grabbed the fruit and, as I started to run away, I heard her say faintly, ‘I’ll see you tomorrow.’ I returned to the same spot by the fence at the same time every day.
She was always there with something for me to eat, a hunk of bread or, better yet, an apple. We didn’t dare speak or linger.
To be caught would mean death for us both!

I didn’t know anything about her, just a kind farm girl, except that she understood Polish. What was her name? Why was she risking her life for me? 

Hope was in such short supply, and this girl on the other side of the fence gave me some, as nourishing in its way as the bread and apples. 
Nearly seven months later, my brothers and I were crammed into a coal car and shipped to Theresienstadt Camp in Czechoslovakia.

‘Don’t return,’ I told the girl that day. ‘We’re leaving.’

I turned toward the barracks and didn’t look back, didn’t even say good-bye to the little girl whose name I’d never learned,
the girl with the apples. 
We were in Theresienstadt for three months. The war was winding down and Allied forces were closing in, yet my fate seemed sealed. 

On May 10, 1945, I was scheduled to die in the gas chamber at 10:00 AM. In the quiet of dawn, I tried to prepare myself. So many times death seemed ready to claim me, but somehow I’d survived. Now, it was over. 
I thought of my parents. At least, I thought, we will be reunited. But at 8 A .M. there was a commotion. I heard shouts, and saw people running every which way through camp. I caught up with my brothers. 

Russian Troops had liberated the Camp! The gates swung open!
Everyone was running, so I did too. Amazingly, all of my brothers had survived; I’m not sure how.
But I knew that the girl with the apples had been the key to my survival. In a place where evil seemed triumphant, one person’s goodness had saved my life, had given me hope in a place where there was none.

My mother had promised to send me an angel, and the angel had come. 

Eventually I made my way to England where I was sponsored by a Jewish charity, put up in a hostel with other boys who had survived the Holocaust and trained in electronics.

Then I came to America, where my brother Sam had already moved. I served in the U. S. Army during the Korean War, and returned to New York City after two years.
By August 1957 I’d opened my own electronics repair shop.
I was starting to settle in.  

One day, my friend Sid who I knew from England called me...
‘I’ve got a date. She’s got a Polish friend. Let’s double date.’
A blind date? Nah, that wasn’t for me.

But Sid kept pestering me, and a few days later we headed up to the Bronx to pick up his date and her friend Roma. 
I had to admit, for a blind date this wasn’t so bad.
Roma was a nurse at a Bronx Hospital. She was kind and smart. Beautiful, too, with swirling brown curls and green, almond-shaped eyes that sparkled with life. 

The four of us drove out to Coney Island. Roma was easy to talk to, easy to be with. Turned out she was wary of blind dates too! 
We were both just doing our friends a favor. We took a stroll on the boardwalk, enjoying the salty Atlantic breeze, and then had dinner by the shore.
I couldn’t remember having a better time. We piled back into Sid’s car, Roma and I sharing the backseat. 

As European Jews who had survived the war, we were aware that much had been left unsaid between us. 
She broached the subject,
‘Where were you,’ she asked softly, ‘during the war?’
‘The camps,’ I said.

The terrible memories still vivid, the irreparable loss... I had tried to forget. But you can never forget.
She nodded.

‘My family was hiding on a farm in Germany, not far from Berlin,’ she told me. ‘My father knew a priest, and he got us Aryan papers.’
I imagined how she must have suffered too, fear, a constant companion. And yet here we were both survivors, in a new world. 

‘There was a camp next to the farm.’ Roma continued. ‘I saw a boy there and I would throw him apples every day.’

What an amazing coincidence that she had helped some other boy.

‘What did he look like? I asked.

‘He was tall, skinny, and hungry. I must have seen him every day for six months.’ 

My heart was racing. I couldn’t believe it. This couldn’t be!

‘Did he tell you one day not to come back because he was leaving Schlieben?’

Roma looked at me in amazement. ‘Yes!’
‘That was me!’ 

I was ready to burst with joy and awe, flooded with emotions.
I couldn’t believe it! My Angel! ‘I’m not letting you go...’ I said to Roma.
And in the back of the car on that blind date, I proposed to her. I didn’t want to wait. ‘You’re crazy!’ she said.

She invited me to meet her parents for Shabbat dinner the following week.
There was so much I looked forward to learning about Roma, but the most important things I always knew: her steadfastness, her goodness, and many months, in the worst of circumstances, she had come to the fence and given me hope.
Now that I’d found her again, I could never let her go. That day, she said yes.
And I kept my word!
After nearly 50 years of marriage, two children and three grandchildren, I have never let her go!…..

Herman Rosenblat of Miami Beach, Florida

You’d think Bloomberg is the Brother of Obama as they are both extreme Narcissist!

Bloomberg is a Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, a Turn Coat, as he claimed to be a Republican and after being elected as a Republican he Showed his True Colors and Declares to be Converted to a Lame Liberal Democrat!
Bloomberg is the Eleventh Richest Person in the USA… 33 Billion!
He started out as a Securities Broker and in 1981 formed his own business.
To accumulate such wealth is such a short length of time, in comparison to most Self-Made Wealthy People, there’s room for the possibility of back room and questionable deals.
Like too Many Wealthy People they Love Power and use their Wealth to destroy Businesses and People and Nations as such happening here in the US.
Another Multibillionaire is George Soros, and He to Makes No Bones about using his Money to try and Destroy Our US Constitutional Republic, a System of Gov’t that Enabled him to Achieve such Wealth just to turn around and try to destroy all that made him who he is with the exception, Our Constitutional Republic doesn’t create Liberal “A” Holes, They do that all on their own!!!

Money Isn’t the Root to All Evil as the Quote Insinuates but when used in the Wrong Manner; it is a Dangerous Tool for Destruction!
The Liberals are always saying how the nation is ran and ruled by Wealthy Republicans, having no compassion for the little People, but if you were to do your Home Work, you will find that Wealthy Lame Socialist Liberals have the Reputation for Pure Corruption, using their money for Widespread Corruption hurting people, businesses and the Nation as well as nations!!!

TSA Bans Disabled Woman From Flying Because She Could Not Speak Her Name!

TSA Bans Disabled Woman From Flying Because She Could Not Speak Her Name!http://www.naturalnews.com/044703_TSA_disabled_people_
mute_woman.html#
  

The New York Post reports that Heidi Wright was booked on the flight, and she had arrived at the airport with her sister Sherry. She was stopped at a security checkpoint by a TSA agent because her drivers’ license was expired. Sherry Wright said that the agent insisted that Heidi speak.

Sherry Wright said she showed the agent her sister’s ID, social security card, and DMV papers, but the agent would not let her through security unless she could speak. Heidi Wright wound up taking an eight-hour bus ride to Phoenix, rather than her flight.

Sherry Wright said the TSA agent was rude and insensitive. TSA spokesman Mico Melendez that the incident “could have been handled differently by the TSA and it probably could have been handled differently by the family, and hopefully moving forward the family won’t have this problem again, because they know about the programs that we have in place.”

###############

Blaming the Family and the Victim is as Lame as Our Gov’t Can Get!
It’s a Damned Disgrace and the American People Should Protest in Mass Volumes as Would Certain Others over a Lessor Incident!

Situations the Likes of This, Makes Red Blooded American’s Blood Boil!

This Situation is Totally Uncalled For and Down Right Disgusting for the Behavior of a Fed Employee that Deals with the Public!

The TSA Agent Needs to Make a Public Apology, on Live Prime Time TV, So that the Liberal Media Cannot Edit the Broadcast to Protect One of Their Own Lame “A” Inexcusable People.

He Then Needs to be Chastised by His Employer and be FIRED on the Spot, in Front of the Entire World!

He Needs to Feel the Humiliation He Bestows Upon Others on a Daily Basis!

There is No Excuse for His Actions which Undoubtedly Reflects His True Character, That being of a Total Ass!

I’m Not One for Advocating Suing People over Any Incident That Comes Along, but in This Situation, There is a Need for Making a Precedent of Similar Situations that Occur on a Regular Daily Basis by Unprofessional People Abusing Their Authority While Being Employed to Uphold the Laws of the Land.

It is People, the Likes of this Agent, Who Make Up Today’s Epidemic of Our Youth in having No Respect for Those Around Them, Especially Those Who Honorably Try Serving the People in Protecting Their Safety and Their Freedom.

There’s a Frightening Number of People Today Multiplying Like Flies Possessing No Social Skills, Countless Numbers Who are Self-Centered and have Either Discarded or Haven’t Been Taught Any Decency, in being Polite, Respectful, or Possessing a Suitable Amount of Integrity as Well as Morality.

This is the Results of the Liberal Mindset in Their Deliberate Intent to Destroy the Very Nature of Our Nation’s Foundation, a One of a Kind in the World, by Inflicting a Social Disease that Will Increasingly Decay Morality, that which is Necessary to Promote an Acceptance of Social Cohabitation by Every Ethnicity and Religion Around the World.

In Ever Society There Are Those Who Cannot Conduct Their Selves in a Civil Manner No Matter How Hard They Try.
Social Harmony is a Necessity in Retaining a Successful and Sustainable Relationship for Man’s Coexistence, and, it can only be Obtained Through the Reduction in Numbers of Irresponsible Parents Who Forego the Effort to Teach Their Children How to Be Socially Conscience…

“A” Holes Breed, “A” Holes and There are Far Too Many Offspring Who are Capable, but are Unwilling to Think and Act Responsibly for Their Selves, so They Follow Their Parents Lack in Displaying Their Social Responsibility, or in Cases of the Growing Epidemic of, Irresponsible Single Parenting!
Fortunately, there are a Commendable Number Spawned from Delinquent Parents, Who Possess a Sense of Good Level Headedness and a Desire to Assert a Level of Personal Decency, Despite Their Ill Rearing!
People with a Square Level Head, Cannot Blame Anyone Else for Their Lack of Social Responsibilities, as They are Perfectly Capable of Maintaining a Respectable and Responsible Lifestyle!

Once the People See Actual Positive Results, Then Maybe the People Will Start to Believe there is Hope that a Revolution Will Not Be Necessary to Restore the US Constitutional Republic!
