    That is a wonderful video. Fair play to them all.

    Not so sure about the rights and wrongs of it but the old guy can certainly move

    On reflection, and with regards to my previous two-lined entry in relation to this video, I feel that I have not fully afforded this video the recognition and respect it deserves. And so I hope in some way here, to make amends.

    This video is a wonderful video, I feel, because it is a beautiful illustration of the human spirit over adversity. Can you not see that?.

    This video speaks eloquently, for every person who has stared into the face of oppression and violence and survived. It also speaks eloquently, for every person who has stared into the face of oppression and violence and who did not survive. Lest we forget.

    If anybody has the right to dance in celebration here, then it is that old man and his wonderful daughter and grandchildren.

    I think we could all learn a very valuable lesson here, don’t you think?.
    I know that I for one, can only sit back and hold these people in awe and admiration.

    Denise, I am only speaking for myself here, because I can only speak for myself. I am also shaking typing this here. If I thought for one moment that I had disrespected the memories of the six million Jewish people who were murdered in the Holocaust as well as all the survivors of the Holocaust, then I would die, right here, right now.

    Are you for real? If so relax, Jesus..

  9. Keith M. Says:

    We need more answsers here. Was Deirdre involved in the holocaust herself? or just a fan? Can she account for her whereabouts between 1939 and 1945??

  10. Rob Says:

    We’ll have a quick word association game now Deirdre. I say “Heil”, you say…?
