Rather than accepting the refund that we offered, Manuela said she wanted us to donate her packages to three people who would benefit from them.
So, our staff at Lev Haolam contacted Mrs Orth — a faithful friend and customer in the United States who has a connection with the community of Holocaust survivors in Dallas, Texas. She said she would be delighted to find recipients for the three packages, so we shipped them to her.
Mrs Orth took the packages to the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum. The museum was founded by Holocaust survivors in the Dallas area and is dedicated to teaching the history of the Holocaust and advancing human rights to combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference.
During a special exhibition on Stories of Survival, Adilene Hernandezm — Education Coordinator at the Museum — chose three Holocaust survivors to give the Lev Haolam packages to. Their names were Rosa Blum, Magie Furst, and Rosian Zerner. The three ladies were deeply moved by these gifts, and by the story of how they had travelled through Belgium and Israel to arrive into their hands.
Our thanks go to both Manuela Neuhaus and to Mrs Orth for making a way for this wonderful story of hope to happen!
