This just might be one of the most startling videos you’ll see. People either love it or hate it — there is no middle ground.
And there shouldn’t be. As YouTube describes it:
On a recent trip to Europe, a family of three generations (a Holocaust survivor, his daughter and his grandchildren) dance to Gloria Gaynor’s pop song – ‘I Will Survive’ at concentration camps and memorials throughout Europe.
It sounds awful. But after I began watching it, my skepticism dissolved into tears. There is something overwhelmingly life-affirming here. It’s defiant, brave, even joyous.
As for me: L’chaim. To life!
