“I feel a lot of gratitude to Poles and to Poland, because Poles saved me,” said Holocaust survivor Halina Friedman in an interview with Polish state news agency PAP as Jews worldwide marked Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The day was marked by Israel and Jews all over the world from Wednesday to Thursday.

“This is a sad day for me, a day of my memories and the memories of all of us – six million Jews” who died in the Holocaust, said Friedman.

She attended a special ceremony held by the Yad Vashem Institute in Jerusalem on Wednesday, where she lit of one six candles in memory of the victims of the Nazi German genocide.

Although she did not speak during the ceremony, Friedman told PAP that she would like Holocaust memory to be “eternal, to be sacred, so those that cannot speak are not forgotten.”

Friedman has been living in Israel since the 1950s.
