What a neat story.
I guess I only have a few words, and that’s all.
First of all I would like to thank you for visiting Banning High School it was such an honor to have you there, your stories were such interesting. Thank you for dedicating your time to share your expirience during the Halocaust and I hope you can visit another time. I am looking forward to reading your book, thank you once again. =)
I much appreciate your comment, am very glad that I visited Banning HS today, and my only regret is that the bell rang, ending our session, about 5 minutes before I was finished with the presentation. I hope to return to Banning next school year and on that visit I’ll make sure that the bell and I are on the same schedule . Re my book, your being on this website tells me that you’ll access it via scribd.com. Good, hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for visiting MSJHS today. i was very moved and i hope you could share your story again next year.
Thank you for these words, Joshua. I’m very glad to have visited your school and am very touched by the genuine warmth and enthusiasm of the many students and your teachers. I just returned home and look forward to reading tonight the many ‘thank you’ notes you and others have written on both the flat (8 1/2 x 11) sheets and on the big scroll that I was given today. And, yes, I look forward to coming again to MSJHS next year.
Hi, I just wanted to say thank you so much for visiting MSJHS today (like Joshua said). It was such an honor to hear your story and it was amazing. It really made me think about not only the past, but also my actions for the future. I’m really glad that you came and shared your story, and I hope you come back next year. Thanks
Thank you, Stephanie. It’s words and comments such as yours that keep me doing these talks in spite of my moments of discomfort, such as when I choked up during today’s talk. I’m glad that you’re relating it to your own life and actions in the future, and I hope you remember your today’s feeling if and when you ever come upon a situation of injustice or intolerance in the future.
I was really touched by your presentation at MSJ High school. I am definitely reading your book.
Thanks, Virgil. I really appreciated visiting MSJHS as the students and the teachers are so enthusiastic. I’ve lots of photos and will put them on my weblog ASAP, but it’ll be late next week since I leave for Seattle on Saturday.
I really enjoyed this book. The photographs gives a better background to the story.
Thank you for coming to Milpitas High School. You should be expecting another 80-90+ letters next week so be prepared!
Thanks for the warning – I better brush up on speed-reading
Touched me so deeply..anxious to read. Actually I know very little about that era…too young at the time. Very close to your age.
Thank you. Hope it’ll give a glimpse of what happened…
I am your ‘cousin’ by marriage.
Thank you for coming. I read your book and was amazed by how when you shared it with us how precise and close both versions were. Thank you
I must add that you are a truly amazing man and our class was blessed to have you come.
Thanks, Michael. I much appreciate both of your comments. I look forward to meeting with you again and am sure that we will. By the way, I presume that Ms. Do showed you the photo I emailed her of my granddaughter with your gift teddy bear – we both thank you for it.
Hello, I am enjoying these e mails and updates immensely………..thankyou from the bottom of my heart for what you are doing~! My new hero……
Thanks, Judy. The feedback from students makes my talks very gratifying.
I think she forgot, but I will remind her I look forward to seeing it.
Michael, check your email. The photo is waiting for you. George
Thank you for the picture
Thanks for visiting Kent Mountain View Academy a few months ago! I had been eager to hear a story from a survivor for years and I must say that my life changed courses on its railroad. Thank you ever so much again!
You are most welcome, Celeste. I very much hope that you like yourself on this changed course and where it takes you.
My very best, George
i wanted to know, did you ever have the feeling of having a real home
Michael, I understand & appreciate your question, and I answered it to your email.
My very best, George
Thank you very much, this will help for the essay I’m writing.
Mr. Elbaum I’ve sent you my essay I finished yesterday, thank you for all your help.
