Dear Solomon Radasky:
I admire you for prevailing through such a sad and lethal event in human history. My name is Robert Combs, I am the director of the Virginia Holocaust Museum, right here in Richmond. This year after several charitable events, we are excited to announce the expansion of the Virginia Holocaust Museum. Sifting through our choices of exhibits to put on display, we found a picture that possibly has to do with your survival story and I was wondering if we could include your story along with our brand new exhibit.
We came across your incredible Holocaust survival story online at (http://www.holocaustsurvivors.org/) your story is amazing, saddening, but also awakening; we would love to share it with the world. The picture found at Auschwitz near the Crematoriums was just eye-opening. Throughout your journey from work camp to work camp you miraculously survived and had many near death experiences.
I was wondering if you would allow us to use your story as an exhibit in the museum in the Virginia Holocaust Museum. The exposure of your survival story is crucial to the progression of knowledge for the next generation so they don’t forget what terrible things occurred, we want to teach this generation in order to prevent a repetition of the past.
Thank you for publishing your story online so that I could further educate myself about your story and get to know you better as a person and a survivor. Your story is inspiring and it would make a big impact on the next generation.
