Helen Jakubowski's incredible life from an idyllic childhood in Hrubieszow, a small town in Eastern Poland, to surviving Auschwitz, Bergen Belzen, and 8 other concentration camps is retold, for the first time, in this interview on the 50th year anniversary of her liberation. Stories that had been buried within her for over 50 years, but from which she suffered nightmares daily, relate how she survived with dignity and rebuilt her life from a heap of ashes. Her inspirational story is a testament to the importance of the will to live. In a world of fallen heroes, it's a reminder that there's a potential hero in all of us. For those depressed or paralyzed by what life has thrown at them, I hope her story provides you strength to overcome your adversities. For those seeking excellent educational tools to teach about the experiences of those who lived through the Holocaust, you'll find them here in the oral testimonies of Helen Jakubowski and her husband, Dr. David Jakubowski.
