Alice Herz-Sommer, the world’s oldest living Holocaust survivor, passed away today at 110 fucking years old.
This lady was a BAMF- not only did she play fucking piano concerts as a prisoner in a concentration camp, she tells a story:
"She recalled an awkward conversation on the night before her departure to the concentration camp with a Nazi who lived upstairs and called to say that he would miss her playing.
She remembered him saying: “’I hope you will come back. What I want to tell you is that I admire you, your playing, hours and hours, the patience and the beauty of the music.”’
Other neighbours, she said, stopped by only to take whatever the family wasn’t able to bring to the camp.
“So the Nazi was a human, the only human. The Nazi, he thanked me,” she said.”
And THAT, ladies and gentlewolves, is what a good human being looks like.
Rest in peace, you delightful minx. You will NOT be forgotten. (x)
