It was a daunting assignment: speaking to 120 eighth grade girls about the Holocaust in the last hour of the last day of their school year.
Compounding my challenge, it was gloriously sunny outside.
I recieved an email in my inbox with a title "5 mistakes you're making as a mother in law" - What an awful title.
And what an unpleasant declaration to see in my inbox. Especially shown in the worst light possible in films & Television.
Rebbetzin Feige, I had had a wonderful relationship with my in-laws for two years until the birth of my first child.
Suddenly my mother-in-law turned very malicious, and now my son is 8 years old, and I'm fed up with her untrue snide remarks, unasked for advice and downright rude behavior when she visits (like screaming at me, of course only when her son isn't present).
I told these teenage girls that my mother-in-law was roughly their age during the war years, beginning in June 1941 when the Nazis invaded her town, until July 1944 when the Russians liberated Lublin where she had been hiding with a non-Jewish family.
Then I dove into the story, which is truly incredible and gripping – including a Hollywood-worthy climax as Rachel rides in the caboose of a speeding train transporting a thousand SS soldiers to Germany.
The Main Shul in Ludmir Rachel’s childhood town, Ludmir, was home to about 22,000 Jews before the war.
I feel I should confront her with my husband when these things come up, of course with the preamble, "Mama, I know that you are trying to help.
And we really do appreciate your thoughtfulness, but we would really appreciate if you..." My husband tells me, "That won't work. Just ignore it and lighten up." But after eight years of this verbal abuse, I can't.
The girls would be anxious to take leave for their summer vacation.
In my favor, I was going to tell them a remarkable story: that of my mother-in-law, Rachel Blum, may her soul rest in peace – a story I have told to spell-bound audiences and have recently published in book form under the title Run Rachel Run.
