My class just finished your book "I have lived 1000 years." They would like to write to you. If this is possible, would you send an address to which they could send their letters. They really enjoyed reading about your experiences.

Ms. Bitton Jackson! I love your books. My mother was born in Hungary in 1943 and is wanting to learn more about her past and family. She would love to somehow contact you. Hoping to receive a response!

On a daily basis our TV's, Radios and Newspapers report on many tragedies. The theme that runs through all of these is that we (the people) muct learn lessons from these, but do we.
When you read the stories of Livia Bitton-Jackson (Auschwitz) and Luong Ung (Cambodia) and see what is happening in the world today it is clear no lessons are being learned.
Here is a poem I wrote back in 2005 -
IN THE FIERY-RED OVENS OF AUSCHWITZ
In the fiery-red ovens of Auschwitz
The Jews from the Ghettoes were burned
But from this tragic occurrence
Have any real lessons been learned.
For Pol Pot in the killing fields of Cambodia
Murdered two million people they say
Whilst most of the worlds free nations
Simply chose to look the other way.
Then Idi Amin came along in Uganda
Killed his opponents and ate them for tea,
Was justice truly given to his victims
When the Saudis gave him sanctuary?
In Ireland so many years of bloody conflict
Have, we hope, now come to a full stop
Bur should Adams, Paisley and others
For their sins now face the long drop?
And now in this 21st Century
In Iraq we’ve had that tyrant Saddam Hussein
Who though he gassed and murdered his people
Some people would absolve him from blame.
There are many, many more I could mention
Who have tortured, murdered and slain,
Each decade brings forth a fresh horror
And it keeps happening again and again and again.
Yes, in the fiery-red ovens of Auschwitz
The Jews from the ghettoes were burned
And what is clear since this tragic occurrence
Any lessons have clearly been spurned.
