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.

Barid Temple posts on 3/12/2009 12:34:30 AM Dear ruth Your story was amazingly written,where you wrote"ih there is life there is hope." It really showed me that you know the value of life,and i respect that. I loved your book, it inspired me to stand up and not let others get reasonlessly beat on. When I heard that this was part of your life story i was shocked that someone could have as much bravery and courage as you did. I cant imagine how it would have been like. thats the most impressive story ive ever heard. I cant really relate to your experiences, but i am a teenager and i see discrimination everywhere i go. Adults will usually take one glance over at me and already assume that im up to no good. what ive learned from this is that even though others might think i am bad or insignificant that i can look in the mirror and say, i am proud to be who I am
Ashley posts on 3/11/2009 10:35:56 AM Ruth, For a class project, we are supposed to send a letter to the author of the book we are reading. I would really like your address, so I can send it to you!
Michael Li posts on 3/10/2009 7:22:14 PM Dear Mrs. Sender, our class has finished reading your book The Cage. I found it very deep and heartwarming, how you never gave up or gave in. When I was reading the book, I was amazed by how you went through all those troubles and hardships, and you still found the strength to keep on going. I can only imagine how hard it must have been for you. During one of your interviews, I read that you had found a cousin you never knew about. I was surprised that he still managed to find relatives like you even though he knew nothing about his past. It must have been so hard for you and everybody else, everyday fighting for life and not knowing what tomorrow would bring. One question I have is when things seemed so bad it couldn't get any worse, what did you do to keep your head up high and hope? Thank you for taking your time to read this, we will never how hard it was back then to be living in the ghetto, but your incredible story will live on forever.
Rae-Ann Williamson posts on 3/10/2009 11:11:32 AM Dear Ruth. I was very impressed and touched by your novel "The Cage". I loved how you showed so much compassion for others in this hard dark time. It must have taken some courage to write about the Holocaust seeing as it is such a difficult thing to talk about, never the less endure. When I read the story of your life, I was truly touched. Thoughts ran through my mind about how actual human beans can do this to one another. Without the lables, we are all the same underneath. Also, the interview you did for That was also very touching. I loved how you talked about when you got sick, but you kept your mothers words in you heart and mind and repeated them and made it through. It was very touching, and something all of us should remember going through hard times. I have one question for you. If you had to go back to that time, would there be one thing you would try to do to help? Sincerely, Rae-Ann Williamson. P.s. Please e-mail me back.
