What Makes Us Human? Francine Tells Her Story of a Childhood in the Holocaust
I've been watching The Story of God with Morgan Freeman on National Geographic and one of the underlying questions is, "What makes us human?" The series goes in depth about the soul and human awareness. So, the big questions have been on my mind recently. Then, I saw this mini documentary in my Facebook news feed.
The description of the video reads, "Born in 1933, Francine Christophe was deported with her mother at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in 1944. Released the following year, she continues to share her experience and memories, particularly with the younger generations."
She paints the picture of her childhood and how she and her mother came through the horrors with grace. And, the video reminds us that even small acts of generosity by a child can be powerful. It will be five of the most phenomenal minutes of your life listening to this woman's history.
After watching this, I clicked through to the channel. There are 85 more examples of the unbridled human spirit from all over the world waiting to be watched. I hope you enjoy it too.
