Address on Behalf of the Survivors, by Hana Meiri

State Opening Ceremony of Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day ‏2015

Every child knows when he was born. Who his mother and father are.  What his family name is.  This right was taken away from me.  This is a summary of my life story:  a childhood in the shadow of a lost identity.

Over the years, I’ve managed to gather very little autobiographical information, so the picture of my life looks like a puzzle with only very few pieces.
