When last year we were asked to volunteer for a new project at school, and I was a new pupil who didn't know what the project was about, did not think that today I would say that it was the best thing that ever happened to me in my life.

Dear Irit and Ezra,
I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for developing this huge project. Thank you for coming to Nesher. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a part of it.

Until now I did not have a real connection to the Holocaust. Yes, I have been moved on Holocaust Remembrance Days, and yes, I have been interested in the stories, but until now I have not really realized what being a Holocaust survivor means. It always seemed to me as something that happened to "that person", or "they were there once when it happened", but in the project, it was the first time when it did not happen to people there. It happened to people who are in the room with me, and who I meet time and again, and I look forward to these meetings.

Hello everybody, my name is Chris and I just came back from my holidays in Israel. What an exciting and beautiful country full of nice people! At my first stop there in Mitspe Ramon I met Ezra Dagan and talked to him about his and your work while having a delicious breakfast.
