The Impact of a Single Act of Kindness, as Told by a Holocaust Survivor
The upcoming documentary called Human is “a collection of stories about and images of our world, offering an immersion to the core of what it means to be human. Through these stories full of love and happiness, as well as hatred and violence, HUMAN brings us face to face with the Other, making us reflect on our lives. From stories of everyday experiences to accounts of the most unbelievable lives, these poignant encounters share a rare sincerity and underline who we are – our darker side, but also what is most noble in us, and what is universal.”
One of the people feature in the documentary is 83-year-old Francine Christophe. Christophe is a French writer and poet, and she is also a Jewish survivor of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in northern Germany which was liberated in 1944. Christophe was asked to be a part of Human to tell her story of the impact of kindness in light of terrible circumstances. More importantly, how those impacts last much longer than the moment in time in which they occurred.
Take a minute to hear Christophe’s amazing story, and prepare to have your faith in humanity restored.
