With all the Golden Globes hype this weekend, I missed an important news story. It was an obituary for Leon Leyson, the youngest person on Schindler's list.
He spent the first half of his life after the Holocaust in silence about the ordeal because he didn't think people wanted to hear about it and he wasn't a confident public speaker. It wasn't until after Spielberg's movie that Leyson began speaking to groups about his experiences.
I like his quote when he said "The truth is, I did not live my life in the shadow of the Holocaust. I did not give my children a legacy of fear. I gave them a legacy of freedom."
So many horrific life experiences, I dare say none greater than the Holocaust, and Schindler's 'Little Leyson' was still able to leave a legacy of freedom for his family. Incredible.
