  1. Hi Vered, I just wanted to say it was great to meet you at Kaye Academic College, and to present with you at the Yom Ha'Shoah event, especially after following your blog. I was so impressed that you presented bilingually! It was really appreciated by me and my colleague Pauline, as English speakers!
    I'll never look at Facebook the same way again after hearing your presentation! And what you told us about digital (virtual) Holocasut testimony is incredible, I'm definitely going to look into that more!
    All the best with your blog, and I hope we catch up again in the future! Vicky :)
