Illuminate

A link to an incredibly moving, powerful story:

Oscar Fisher's Auschwitz

What is it about this story that moves me to overwhelming emotion?

In part, it's the swell of emotion in Debra Fisher's voice. I can only imagine what she's holding back in order to get the words out.

It's the way in which Oscar Fisher protected his daughter all those years.

It's Debra's courage to walk in that room with her father.

And it's the unimaginable tragedy of the room itself.
