This Is Your Life, Hanna Kohner ...the story of a Holocaust Survivor ! Tissues Please!

In a video uploaded to the Holocaust Visual Archive’s YouTube channel, one of the most emotional reality tv episodes was captured detailing the life of a Holocaust survivor who had only been liberated a few short years prior.
In 1953 32-year-old Hanna Bloch-Kohner was the first non-celebrity to appear on Ralph Edwards’s This Is Your Life, the reality series that aired on NBC radio and television from 1948 to 1961.


Bloch-Kohner, born in Czechoslovakia, was arrested in 1943 and eventually sent to Auschwitz. Edwards left out one shocking detail that Bloch-Kohner would reveal in later interviews: she was pregnant when she was deported, and to survive, she had a secret abortion. She listens as he describes her separation from her brother Gottfried, who had moved to Israel after the war and who later steps out from behind the curtain, and the death of her first husband in the gas chambers.
Bloch-Kohner’s face is incredibly expressive as she exudes delight at seeing loved ones she has not seen in years, and of incredible sorrow. When they arrive at the part of the story when she discovers that her brother is still alive, she interrupts Edwards because she needs to tell the rest of it herself.

Anything and everything from that era is heartbreaking, but the most important part that hurts is the fact that the Zionist murderers are at fault directly and indirectly so to expedite their ambition of establishing the Zionist atheistic murderous mafia regime as their slogan was at the time before and during the Nazi atrocities RAK BEDAM TIYEH LANU ARETZ

You disgusting animal! You upgerissinar naar!
Those words "RAK BEDAM TIYEH LANU ARETZ" that you keep quoting was the figment of R' Weissmandel's imagination ... no one ever said that ...show me ... who and when it was said .... we now have the minutes of that meeting and it's not there ...
but even if it was ...that was one person .... you fariktah meshiginer...
The Zionists B"H with Hashem's help established a medinah L'shem Ulteferes ... a place for every single Jew to call home .. a place for over 100,000 bochrim to learn to Torah ... and you can go to hell!

Tnx for your outburst and the compliments, that one person was in the leadership of Zionism pre WWII and a president in the state which didn't have yet one peaceful day without terror and will never have, and that's a state which you're so proud of! And I'm the farikter? You should check yourself out

Where did the crusades happen? Where did the inquisition happen? Where did the Chelemetzky pogroms happen? Where did the 6 million Jew get murdered, and where did Hitler not touch them (in Israel)?
Where did the Chabad un Ukraine get beaten to a pulp?
You farkitah naive meshiginar ....
and their was more violence just yesterday in the USA than in the entire last three years in Israel!
