Nancy McGrady posts on 4/17/2009 3:32:05 PM Good Afternoon- My son is in 7th grade, and a recent assignment in G&T Language Arts was to select a book about the Holocaust, and write a 5 paragraph essay. He selected The Cage, and wrote a beautiful story. I would like to e mail it to you. Where may I direct it? Thank you for giving my son such insight! Nancy McGrady

Laura Wickman posts on 4/7/2009 4:02:33 PM Hi, My name is Laura and I am a teacher who is currently teaching your book, The Cage. I am looking to have a speaker come in and talk with my students about his/her experiences during the Holocaust. I would love it if you were available, but am not sure how to go about contacting you. My email can be found in the "form to post this message." Thank you-Laura

Megan posts on 4/6/2009 3:08:16 PM Hi again! I wanted to ask you what the hardest part of the Holocaust was for you? Also, while you were writing the books/poems about your life on the Holocaust, was it painful for you to look back on, or were you just thankful that you lived to tell the tale? Thanks, and best wishes! Megan
Ruth Minsky Sender posts on 4/2/2009 7:26:11 PM Dear Megan I always wanted to be a teacher and a writer. I wrote since I was 10 years old. If I lived in another country not Poland,I still would be a writer. My topic would been different. With best wishes. Riva
megan posts on 4/1/2009 2:22:27 PM If you would not been in Poland when the Holocaust happened, how do you think your life would have been different? What if you were born in America, or Asia? Would you still write? Thanks! Love Megan
Ruth Minsky Sender posts on 3/25/2009 12:05:51 PM Dear Christopher Thank you sovery much for you sensitive letter. I am moved and appreciate it. We must rememeber and learn what hate, prejidice and indiffererence leads to. We must hold on to hope. We do not know how much hidden strength we have until we need it. As long as there is life there is hope. With best wishes Riva
Christopher Miquel posts on 3/25/2009 11:23:26 AM I absolutely loved your book. I am a Christian, but many of my mum’s close friends are Jewish. Because of this, I have a bit of an understanding of the Jewish Religion, and I greatly respect it. Your book really touched my heart. I felt like I was there. You have no idea how much I despised the Germans and their evil doing. I could never understand how people could be so ignorant to the fact that everyone is equal. Lately I have been learning and closely paying attention the events of the Holocaust. I believe it is necessary to remember what happened. I read a book that gave me 5 points to why we shouldn’t forget the Holocaust. It is only by facing up to what happened that we can learn from it and ensure that it never happens again. The Holocaust shows us how horribly destructive hatred and prejudice can be if they remain unchecked. It warns us against the arrogance of those who came to be superior to others. It alerts us to the dangers when the strong exert uncontrolled power on the weak. Lastly, social and economic hardships can provide opportunities for fanatical leaders to seize power. Having made the past point, I think right now it is very important not to forget people with stories like yours. I almost cried reading this book. I could never imagine losing any of my family, having friends turn on me and being treated like an animal. I am so terribly sorry for what happened to you. I admire your courage and strength to make it through. I would love to meet you someday. The thing that I now realise is that I need to be thankful for everything I have. I thank you so much for showing this to me in your book. In tough times like this, I will remember to hope just as you hoped. If this gets worse, all we have left is hope and for you, hope is enough. Hope is something strong that we can always believe in. I believe one day I will see my grandparents in Heaven. I hope for you, one day you will see Motele, Moishele, Laibede and Mama. I am sure of it. Just never lose hope just as your mother said.
