Today was arts and crafts day. Kathleen and I were running the show. The survivors surprised us yet again with their talent. They each painted a square with the theme of “What makes me happy”. Let me tell you, they were so happy to let their inner artist come out that some asked to do a second square. How can you say “no” to these faces?! Next it was on to making picture frames. Here they were able to let they individual styles shine through. We were able to learn so much more about these gentle souls and gain a deeper connection to them.
Since today is Friday we had a traditional Shabbat dinner. What a wonderful experience. Then afterwards we ended the evening with a concert of wonderful music.
All in all it was another great day in Ostroda. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
