We mourn the loss of holocaust survivor and March of the Living educator, Isaac Goldstein z”l, who travelled with our Western Region for many years, sharing his story and impacting the lives of countless teens and adults. Isaac was the only person in his family to survive the Holocaust only because a friend gave him a pair of shoes at the last minute. Isaac spent time in a number of camps including Majdanek, Auschwitz and Buna Amnuvitz. He witnessed first hand horrible atrocities committed man against man. He often wondered why he was still alive while he watched his family and friends dragged off never to be seen again. May his memory be a blessing and may his family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
