SPECIAL EP: A CONVERSATION WITH HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR PINCHAS GUTTER

HE SURVIVED 6 NAZI CONCENTRATION CAMPS AND USES HIS PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY TO RELIVE HIS TRAUMA, IN HOPES OF PREVENTING HATE AND GENOCIDE

On this International Holocaust Remembrance Day, I wish you joy. But how can I begin this day by wishing JOY?

Because I can begin this day.

Because my grandparents survived the Holocaust - without which I wouldn't be here.

Because my grandparents survived the Holocaust by finding any bits of joy they could to keep going.

Yes, my grandmother and grandfather were Holocaust survivors. But I still lost them to it. Their minds were casualties well after their bodies continued. Then, as a very young child, each of them passed within months of each other.

I never had the chance to speak to them about it, so I’ve been on a quest to speak to as many survivors as possible. Especially now that so few remain.

But imagine being able to share your experience - vividly - with your photographic memory.

Today, you’ll meet a survivor who can: Pinchas Gutter - a Holocaust survivor of 6 concentration camps.

What grips my heart even more is how Pinchas chooses to continuously relive his trauma - including in a virtual reality exhibit, where he entered the very gas chamber in which his twin sister and parents were barbarically taken.

Why?

He tells me he does this in hopes that it will help stop the spread of hate and prevent horrors for others.

It is a privilege to have Pinchas share his story with us … What’s more, he shares the secret of his survival. Hopefully, it will help you, too.

Pinchas Gutter

This episode is dedicated this show to my Bubby Rose and Zaidie Sander.

It’s because of them I could do it.

They were strong enough to survive the Holocaust. You're strong enough to learn about it.

Never forget. Never again.

My Zaidie Sander and Bubby Rose. May each of their memories be a blessing.

DAHLIA is like Mister Rogers' Neighborhood - but for adults. This fun and meaningful podcast looks for the helpers and ways to help you through your day. It may be conversations with everyday people doing extraordinary things, Oscar winners who have overcome the odds, or the man who jumped off The Golden Gate Bridge to take his life, yet miraculously lived to save so many lives. It may be giving a voice to those in need. But it’s always bringing people together. You won't get inundated with information here. You already get too much of that. You need wonder and reflection. So expect lots of that. Dahlia has been a talk show host for a decade with a mission to spread kindness. And her Network of Angels always leaves a trail. So come on over and let's make good things happen ... Why live and let live when you can live and HELP live?
