Francine Christophe is an 82-year-old Holocaust survivor and the story she tells in the documentary film, HUMAN, is one that proves without a doubt the powerful nature of stories. And perhaps most especially the stories that come from our own personal experience. This interview (under five minutes) made me stop everything else IÂ was doing today and create a blog post so that you could perhaps listen to her story, too.
I had never heard of Francine Christophe until today.Â But I find it heartening thatÂ this YouTube video has been viewed nearly 18 millionÂ times so far. If you haven’t seen it yet, I hope you’ll take the time to experience a story that explores the far-reaching results of kindness.
Francine ChristopheÂ was deported with her mother to aÂ concentration camp in northern Germany in 1944. She gives frequent lectures to tell her story.
