Day 160 - DANIEL 12:3-4

And those who have insight will shine.......

Sorry wrong blog number but seriously what does it matter it is just a number!!!

My dad's concentration camp and war story starts at Day 1 - so unfortunately you have to scroll way back to get to the beginning - sorry about that! Maybe I should have started with the end and gone back to the beginning as I blogged!!!!!

Day 159 - John Lennon Take 2

You're just left with yourself all the time,
whatever you do anyway you've got to
get down to your own God in your own temple
It's all down to your mate!

My role in society or any other artist's role
or poet's role is to try and express whatever
they feel.
Not to tell people how to feel.
Not as a preacher, not as a leader but as
a reflection of all of us!

I posted the above on this blog by accident but realized John Lennon's quotes apply to my dad's story!  This blog is primarily about my dad's war stories plus his attitude to life in general!

Day 1 is an Introduction and then approximately Day 2 to about 110 are his experiences during World War II - after that I have added random information.

I also have my own blog at or com - in which I reflect on my own life experiences.  Have a happy time!

Day 157 - I was thrilled when

my dad's memoir received 10 hits over a year ago now!  It is great to see new hits, on a regular basis, from many different countries.  I am sure, he would have been thrilled if any body found his memoir helpful in any way, shape or form!

Way to go dad, I feel like I am still bringing your "slippers" to you!???  Woohooo....................................

Day 156 - Allied Airmen and Buchenwald!

I found this dedication in a book by Carol Matar.  It struck a chord with me as my dad survived Buchenwald and he also had a great respect for the Allied airmen who went to Buchenwald!

 "To the 168 Allied airmen shot down and sent to Buchenwald and to all airmen to whom we owe our freedom and also to my family who along with myself, might not even exist had Hitler prevailed."

..... was watching some silent movies on the liberation of Buchenwald - I definitely want to visit Weimar and Buchenwald in the near future!
