The State Of Empathy


My Cousin Ben (Alexander) Berenfus escaped the Warsaw Ghetto in early days
and made it to London to tell people what was going on and nobody believed him
and is a subject of “Dying To Live” work in progress documentary
the story of survivors and people who studied them tell us unbelievable stories
that we must learn from so we don’t repeat them
