My blog, entitled “My Father’s Story: an unusual life,” is about my father, a Holocaust survivor, who recently passed away. I thought that this would be an opportune time to write this blog, given that this year is also the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, where his brothers and sisters perished. Given my father’s reticence to talk about his experiences in the war, I believe that this will be a an opportunity to get to know my father on a level that I hadn’t while he was alive.
I am presently the marketing manager, copy writer, and media liaison for the Canadian Society for Yad Vashem, the Canadian representative of Yad Vashem, Jerusalem. Yad Vashem is the foremost institution in the world on the Holocaust, whose four pillars of endeavour are documentation, research, education, and commemoration. The Canadian Society for Yad Vashem implements Yad Vashem’s vision throughout Canada.
I am also the founder of MP Communications, which provides writing and marketing services to businesses, not for profits, synagogues and institutions. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, Facebook, and on Twitter @remmaplir.
