My New Twin
Ester was born in 1940 to Tzivia and Chaim Eliezer Wurman– no one knows Ester's exact birthday. The Wurmans lived in Uzendov, Poland. When the war broke out, Ester and her mother were separated from Chaim Eliezer and forced into hiding. A Polish neighbor informed the Nazis where Tzivia and Ester were hiding and they were discovered, dragged out and shot. Esther did not live to see her 3rd birthday.

Ariella - we are so proud of you !! Your maturity, energy, and determination to make a difference and to give to others are an inspiration!!
My tour of Yad Vashem was incredible. I saw things and heard things that I had never seen or heard before. The things that were done to the Jewish people by Hitler and the Nazis were unimaginable. It was very hard to think about it. The ceremony in the Yad Vashem shul was so beautiful and meaningful.
One of the most emotional parts of the day was when we entered the children’s memorial where just a few candles are made to look like millions, and we see the faces and hear the names of so many of the children that did not survive. I don’t know how to describe it. It was the most emotional but incredible day. One I will never forget for the rest of my life.
