EVERYONE HAS A STORY TO TELL
When you tell your story, you have a chance to react to persons, places, ideas and events that had an impact on your life. Explaining, expressing and telling your story in a book gives you the space to say what is in your heart.
Writing your memoir gives you the freedom to say what you think, what you dreamed of, and express how you feel about the way things turned out, all in your own voice. You have much to teach those you love and they have much to learn from you. Even non- writers should try to assemble some sort of memoir to leave a record of their lives and accomplishments for their descendants.
Holocaust survivors write their memoirs for a different reason. They transfer their memories to pages for eternity, enshrining the souls of their martyred families, whether leather-bound masterpieces, stapled sheets of paper or e-books. They are keeping the promise they made to those they left behind, the promise to tell the tale of what happened There. Those who take on this serious mission refuse to break that promise, no matter how challenging and painful it can be. The promise becomes “the book,” a portable yet permanent headstone; one to be carefully read and dearly treasured by family and friends, one to be studied by historians and students.
Your children, grandchildren and friends want to know who you are and where you came from—and they want to know what you know about your parents and grandparents and their lives. They want to know what shaped your life and made you the person you are.
Unlike videos, DVDs, words on paper and on screen link to the brain through a process that somehow goes deep into the soul of the reader. A book is something special, something to cherish, to hand down to your children, from generation to generation, whether it’s on paper or on an e-reader.
When she finished her remarkable manuscript, My Life, My Way, Eta Wrobel, of blessed memory, said, “A person’s stories belong to the future. That’s how memories live on and your descendants remember you. Write. That’s how you find peace of mind.”
