Gratitude from Daughter of survivor
I submitted a form to the Holocaust Center for Reparations on behalf of my 98 year old mother, Nika Kohn Fleissig, who had suffered great losses in the Holocaust and had never gotten any reparations, since dealing with the interviews and dredging up the memories gave her nightmares and days of upset back in the 1960’s when my father first attempted to file for reparations for my mother. Now, I was able to provide the documentation required without my mother’s active help, and was glad to have the acknowledgment that she indeed deserved some tiny compensation for all her suffering. I wrote a book about some of what she endured, entitled: “From Miracle to Miracle: A Story of Survival.” which was published in English and then in Polish. The monthly stipend award was back-dated to when I first filed, so there was an initially larger payment, followed now by monthly payments which, though not large, still help with expenses. We wish to thank Zachi Porat and the whole organization which handled the legal procedures. I wish we knew more about the lawyers and staff who handled the file. They must be interesting and dedicated people. Todah rabbah.
