In Reply to Mr. HoffmanCPA who has been complelled to criticize this beautiful article on that basis that is a blatant form of proganda whose main purpose is to secure future sefer Torah donations . Mr Hoiffman goes on to stsate that there are far more pressing needs that require our charitable contributions. I will refrain from being critical of my fellow Jew and simply state to Mr. Hoffman that you completely missed the spirit and intention of the writer, who sought to highlight the fact that this wonderfully righteous woman survived and outlived her tormentors who sought to permantly eliminated all traces of Judaism in the world.
She remained completely religous throughout the ordeal of being a prisoner in a concertration camp which killed several members of her family. Mr. Hoffman she survived it and because of Jews like her Hashem blessed be his name sustains world we live in. Moreover, to dedicate a Sefer Torah is tantamount to spreading the word of G-d for future generations. What greater sense of revenge could one have than to suceed at propering and surviving the overpowering efforts of the Nazis effort to eradicated Judaism by way of extinction? Mr.hoffman with all due respect I urge you to rethink your position.

Baruch Hashem- blessed is the holy one's name for he is loving and all merciful G-d who words ring true throughtout the ages and we see this in the unfolding of history right before our very eyes. How much more meaning these words must have for this righteous and holy woman, may Hashem always bless her and her entire family. Isaaih 54:4 Fear not , for you will not be shamed, do not feel humilated, for you will not be disgraced for you will forget the shame of your youth and willno longer recall the disgrace of your widowhood, For you're master is your maker, HASHEM, Master of Legions, is his Holy name, your redemer is the Holy one of Isreal; God of all the World will he be called, For like a wife who had been foresaken and melancholy has Hashem called you, and like a wife of one's youth who had become despised, said your G-d. But for a brief moment have I foresaken you, and with abundant will I gather you in, With slight wrath have I concealed My countenace from you for a moment, but with eternal kindness shall I show you mercy, Said you redemer Hashem.
