"Nazi" Poster Child Was Jewish

Interesting piece.


"When Hessy Taft was six months old, she was a poster child for the Nazis. Her photograph was chosen as the image of the ideal Aryan baby, and distributed in party propaganda. But what the Nazis didn’t know was that their perfect baby was really Jewish"

This sentence pretty much hopped off the page for me: 
I can laugh about it now,” the 80-year-old Professor Taft told Germany’s Bild newspaper in an interview"

Doesn't that summarize the Jewish experience? The remarkable life-affirming nature of the Jews?

A one sentence reminder from a survivor to celebrate life and  to continue laughing until our last breath.

Laugh about it now-very sage advice indeed.
