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 I 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. But I find it heartening that this YouTube video has been viewed nearly 18 million 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 Christophe was deported with her mother to a concentration camp in northern Germany in 1944. She gives frequent lectures to tell her story.
