Thomas Buergentha, 11 years old have already lived his short life inside of two ghettos and a working camp. He had been separated from his parents and was left, "alone", in Auschwitz. This is his life, his story.
I wouldn't call his survival luck because what happened to Thomas Buergentha wasn't lucky -- had luck truly been on his side, he would never have ended up in Auschwitz, ghettos or working camps. What Thomas had was nothing short of a miracle. He was a survivor and there are very few left to tell their stories of survival. Each story should be read so that this horrible atrocity is not repeated.
Thomas's story is about hope and resilience. His is an example of forgivness, dignity and compassion.
He has made it his life mission to be an advocate for human right and has served as a specialist in international law and human rights law and judge on the International Court of Justice -- but those are only a few of the things he has accomplished. To understand his passion one must read what happened to him as a young child.
