My name is Max Glauben. I am a survivor of the Holocaust, the Warsaw Ghetto and its uprising, Majdanek, Budzyn, Mielec, Wieliczka, Plaszow, Flossenburg Concentration Camps and the "Death March to Dachau". Please, no questions about Israel/Gaza. I do not feel that I am knowledgeable enough about the situation. My grandson will be typing for me so that we can answer as many as possible in the time that I have!
EDIT: Thank you guys for the questions! I am really glad that I got to do this and I hope I was able to answer some of your questions! I am going to go back and answer some more questions later but in the meantime here is some more information in an article that they did on me in the Dallas Morning News:

On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple is involved in a fatal car accident. The couple find themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven. While waiting, they begin to wonder: Could they possibly get married in Heaven? When St. Peter showed up, they asked him.
St. Peter said, 'I don't know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out,' and he leaves.
The couple sat and waited, and waited. Two months passed and the couple are still waiting. While waiting, they began to wonder what would happen if it didn't work out; could you get a divorce in heaven. After yet another month, St. Peter finally returns, looking somewhat bedraggled.
'Yes,' he informs the couple, 'you can get married in Heaven.'
'Great!' said the couple, 'But we were just wondering, what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?'
St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard onto the ground. 'What's wrong?' asked the frightened couple.
'OH, COME ON!', St. Peter shouted, 'It took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it'll take me to find a lawyer ?
