Address on Behalf of the Survivors, by Naomi Cassuto

State Opening Ceremony of Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day ‏2020

I, Naomi Cassuto, born in Strasbourg, 81 years old, a Holocaust survivor, recount my memories from the time of the Holocaust.

I was five years old, we lived under the Vichy regime in southern France. I remember the terror, the red faces of the farmers, I remember moments of hunger and the fear of getting caught. I also remember the greenery of nature. I was always looking for a four-leaf clover because I believed that if I found one the war would end.

And I remember my father's hand reaching down to me from above. My father built me a dollhouse among the trees and taught me to play the recorder and his bass voice is still with me today.
