Post Old Jewess says she miraculously survived the Holohoax without any food or water


For Emily Kessler, a Holocaust survivor, the prospect of performing at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall is less worrying than figuring out what to wear for the occasion.

“I came to the conclusion,” she said, in an interview at her apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, “that what is the difference between playing in front of three people instead of 300?”

At 97, Kessler is short and slightly hunched. Along with old photographs and birthday cards, prescription pill bottles are scattered throughout her apartment.

“Age is not easy,” she says.

Nevertheless, the soon-to-be 98-year-old is still sharp. And although she moves at a crawling pace to retrieve old black-and-white pictures, when she sits down to play the mandolin, her fingers work just fine.

Kessler will perform and sing songs in Yiddish and Russian Monday night at the 80th Anniversary Benefit Gala for the nonprofit organization Blue Card — the only organization in the United States solely dedicated to providing assistance to Holocaust survivors like herself.

Kessler has been a Blue Card client for almost two decades. They’ve arranged free dental work, orthopedic shoes and even all-expense-paid retreats in the Berkshires. Masha Pearl, Blue Card’s executive director, approached Kessler about playing at the gala several months earlier. Kessler, who likes to be prepared, started practicing right away.

“To be prepared,” she says, “is to respect other people, and to respect yourself, your dignity.”

She had no chance to prepare in 1941, when Nazi officers came to her home in Khmilnyk, Ukraine and shot her parents and brother in front of her. And nothing could have prepared the young widow (her husband, a Soviet soldier, was killed during the Nazi invasion) to care for her 2-year-old son in a Ukrainian labor camp, to treat the open sores on her wrists and arms with nonexistent medical supplies, or to gather the strength for work — construction and toilet cleaning — without food or water.

Somehow she did, however. And her survival, which she calls a “miracle” still confounds her today.

“How did we manage there without food or water? I don’t know, for that, I try not to explain, because it’s difficult.”

Kessler eventually escaped the camp, bringing her son along, using false papers. She lived on the run for two years before relocating to Kyrgyztan. There, in her late 20s, she tried to reassemble the broken pieces of her life. She graduated from university and worked as an editor in a publishing house.

But the damage was done. After the war, the “catastrophe” as she calls it, Kessler was plagued by guilt, sadness. She lived in a constant state of mourning.

“I was very sad, not smiling. I thought, ‘I don’t have the right to smile’. It felt like a crime, like I was guilty of smiling.”

The mandolin, which she began playing at age 10 in her school band, symbolized a time of happiness, so Kessler avoided it entirely.

In Kyrgyztan, where Kessler lived after the war, anti-Semitism was still rampant. So at 60 years old, knowing no one in the U.S. and speaking scant English, Kessler immigrated to the United States (her son, who now lives in Michigan, immigrated several years after her).

“I was happy to leave,” she said. “I had an opportunity to go, and I took it.”

For five years though, she was still “not ready” to play music. But walking in Manhattan one day in 1985, she saw a mandolin in the window of a music store.

“After time, you think to yourself, ‘how long should I be in mourning?’” she said. She bought the instrument, and has been playing for the last 30 years.

“It helped just to go away from the sadness,” she said. “It is not always good to feel this sad. I used to be on the street, and without any thinking, I would feel my heart to be full of tears. No more, now it’s okay.”

Things move slowly these days for Kessler. A cancer survivor who grapples with various health problems and relies on a pacemaker, she spends a good deal of time with doctors, but nonetheless manages to live on her own. She likes a light beer every so often, and going to Upper West Side cafes, although she thinks the portions are always too big.

She still goes on walks around the neighborhood, and is often asked what her secret is for living a long time. She shrugs, “I don’t know. My secret is that there is no secret.”

Why would they shoot her brother who could have helped with construction yet take her with open sores on her wrists and hands and a toddler in tow?

My maternal great-grandfather was from one of oldest and most respectable families in the village and he married my great-grandmother who was a gypsy, and half of his family stopped talking to him.

During the WWII, all the people from the village were gathered one day and the gypsies were asked to step aside and a form a different group. My great-grandmother took her children (including my grandmother) and went with her family and when my great-grandfather followed her, she told him to go with 'his people', but he told her that he was going wherever she and the children were going and stayed with them.

When the mayor of the village started to call people by their name and saw my great-grandfather who he had known all his life in that crowd, told him to take his family and get out of there. The other people were taken somewhere and they were never seen again.

The words 'race traitor', 'subhuman', 'muds', 'shitskins' might make sense to you and justify the sufferance and killing of innocent people, but I assure you, that in any world with good right values, it cannot make sense and it never will.

There is no person without mistake, but there isn't a person that won't pay in this life or the next one for his/her deeds also.

How were these people supposedly killed? Gas chambers? Ovens? Were they turned into soap or lampshades? Were they sat on and turned to jam?

Maybe they died for the same reasons as the millions of other people during the war: the outbreak of typhus, casualties of war, food shortages, etc. and the stories you heard of nazis killing people en masse aren't proven and aren't even logistically possible?

You're smart enough to know these are lies, right?

Whatever, race traitors of all stripes and types should be violently executed. And hopefully I get to partake in the event during my lifetime.

Deal with it.

Why even waste your breath?

People like Lindaxxx aren't objective truth seekers. They are LEMMINGS. They will NEVER get it. If it isn't transmitted by their television receiver via a special TV documentary courtesy of Abe Jewburg its not true.

Aww... I weep for your poor lamentable fambly. Well, actually, I don't.

The only shame in your story is that mayor didn't have the stones to toss your worthless grandfather out with the rest of the trash.

All apply quite well to the genetic dumpster your fambly is.

BTW, are you a pornstar or a cam whore? Why else would you put a triple x in your name?

You are a magnificent being, so much more extraordinary than you can even imagine, and one day you will also discover this and live your life in all your greatness.

Unless there's an extreme case when the personality corrupts the Soul and the Monad cuts the silver chord, and then we'd be dealing with a so called Lost Soul, whatever the personality struggles with, the Universe will always find a way to transform hate into love.

I've already explained this once, haven't I?

It's just a user name. Get over it, will you?
