Shane: It’s great to meet you. I’m so happy to have you available for this conversation. I’ve been looking forward to this for weeks. Your parents were in concentration camps, I think, your mom from 18 to 22 and your father was 25 to 31 because the war started very early for them. What did your parents credit their survival to?
Ether: I think my parents always said luck came first, just sheer luck that they were not rounded up on a certain morning when they would take thousand people and move them from the labor camp to the extermination camp. Secondly, I think they had sheer determination that they were going to be there to, first of all, to be witnesses, to still be there. They imagined that they would have members of their family that they would hopefully see again.
