Presented by Shari Ferber Kaufman
You have come together as survivors from all over the world, who feel more like family than friends who have been with you for years. You have found here a haven, a place where you can feel safe to share raw emotions and allow yourself to go back and feel the trauma that you rarely allow yourselves to feel throughout all these years. It is a togetherness where it is not only acceptable but mandatory to strip yourself down and lower all of your internal emotional walls, as well as the external walls that keep you emotionally safe every single day. You must allow yourself to express your feelings, in an open forum, the pain, sorrow, and guilt for surviving when so many others perished.
