“Alice Dancing Under the Gallows”: a story the world needs to see

That’s the title of a new documentary, about the world’s oldest holocaust survivor. The trailer is below. Here is grace, dignity, courage and hope, summed up so beautifully in her simple creed: “Music is God.”

What a beautiful and inspirational story. It shows me that no matter we are given in this life, there is always good to find. I will share this with many, many people. What a wonderful human being. God Bless her and a Very Happy 107th Birthday Alice.

Mary McGee, while it is nice for U to pray this survivor how about praying for the liberation of all who are presently under terrorist supression — it is not very nice to have to live in a world of terror with a gun starring U in the face — that is what the great generation has not taught its siblings — to SURVIVE —so pray for them.
