This amazing story is about Lilly Friedman, a woman who was raised in a former Czechoslovakia and who also survived Auschwitz, a forced labor camp, a death march and Bergen Belsen concentration camp (also a famous Czech painter and writer Josef Capek died here). Her unfortunate life experiences did not break her spirit, however, having managed to have a special wedding during those hard times, wearing a very special gown. It really is amazing that some people nowadays have the audacity to say that Holocaust did not happen…how would they justify the following story, then?
CZ: Toto je neuveritelny pribeh Lilly Friedmanove, rodacky z ceskoslovenske Zarice, ktera nejen ze prezila Auschwitz, concentracni tabor v Bergen Belsen (kde mimochodem umrel take Josef Capek), ale take hruzny pochod smrti. Tezky osud ji ale nezlomil po strance dusevni, prave naopak. Dokazala totiz usporadat nejen ze mimoradnou svatbu, ale take nosila mimoradne svatebni saty. Je opravdu nevidane, ze jsou na svete lide, kteri veri tomu, ze Holokaust je pouhy mytus.
‘LILLY FRIEDMAN doesn’t remember the last name of the woman who designed and sewed the wedding gown she wore when she walked down the aisle over 60 years ago. But the grandmother of seven does recall that when she first told her fiancé Ludwig that she had always dreamed of being married in a white gown he realized he had his work cut out for him.
For the tall, lanky 21-year-old who had survived hunger, disease and torture this was a different kind of challenge. How was he ever going to find such a dress in the Bergen Belsen Displaced Person’s camp where they felt grateful for the clothes on their backs? [click to continue…]
