This has been a Passover that Leo Weiss will never forget. He hopes that it’s also one that his grandchildren never forget.

Weiss, his brother and sister all survived the Holocaust. For decades, none of them talked about what happened in the concentration camps because “it was still too painful to recall.” But Weiss, the “baby of the family” at 83, decided that “we had to tell the story. Not for us; for our children and our grandchildren and their children still to come. Although we’re all still relatively healthy, we’re getting up there [in years], and we could not die without letting people know what happened so that it would never be allowed to happen again.”
