Luba Keller is an amazing person and friend. I am so glad she is sharing her experiences with all of us even though it is very painful for Luba to remember these terrible experiences.

Luba is a great source of inspiration for us all. She transcend all ages and is a wonderful friend, full of life and positive energy. She is a true warrior with a free spirit and represents positivity, hope, courage and self confidence. She is a gift to humanity. I feel blessed to have known her for the past so many years and draw strength and wisdom from her.

Lubba Keller's story is heartbreaking, as are all of the survivors' remembrances. Special thoughts to them all today, and always.

There were over 55M killed during WWII, and hundreds of millions affected. Let's not forget that.

Thank you for this story. Just today, I met an interesting Israeli whose grandmother had escaped Auschwitz. Then I came home & read this story. So much food for the heart & soul.

As we grow closer to another global war, I think more and more about people like Luba.

Will we never learn from history?

I am a lucky person to have had the privledge to get to know both Luba and her husband David in recent years as they both have spent many hours volunteering at the La Comida.
