Survivor: Nancy Kleinberg

My participation in Sustaining Memories has, I hope, made me a more introspective person. My survivor, Nancy (Nechama) Kleinberg, was just a young teenager during her years in the camps but by dint of her indomitable spirit, strength of character and of heart, she not only survived but also saved the life of the young boy who years later would become her husband. She was and is, in no small measure, a hero. I think about that young girl when I feel hard done by because I’ve had a bad day or because outside forces like Covid-19 have limited my pleasures. I wish I were more like Nancy. In fact, I wish we all were.
