    Your father’s story moved me greatly. When i was a student at Wits in the early 1980’s, i was a member of SAUJS and enrolled to be part of the Student Holocaust Interview Programme that had been initiated to ensure that as many stories were captured (on video). This was a great privilege and honour. James Else
