Avraham Grant visiting the Auschwitz extermination camp

If there is anything that saddens the presenter and actress Scout Grant it is the loneliness of the elderly in general, and Holocaust survivors in particular.

"I do not want to be a politician and do not want to be a minister. But if I ever join politics in the State of Israel, it is only to be the minister of loneliness. To deal with loneliness, which the corona has completely intensified and brought her to simply horrible places."



"The neglect of Holocaust survivors in the country infuriates me and deprives me of sleep, it is disgraceful," she adds in an interview with Walla!

Culture on the occasion of International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

"The form of treatment of Holocaust survivors, and the elderly in general, during the Corona period, is terrible. I am very close to Yehuda Meshi Zahav. He always tells me: 'We took out another elderly man today who for three weeks no one even knew was dead.' Think about the fact that there are Holocaust survivors who are hungry for bread. Think about the fact that there are Holocaust survivors whose infertility simply cries out. From this, Yehuda Meshi Zahav founded the 'Lapidot Woman' organization "I need help, and come to him. I have been active in this matter for many years."



Grant will participate today (Wednesday) in a conference called "Beacon for Growth", marking the International Holocaust Remembrance Day held for the second year in memory of the late Holocaust survivor Meir Grant, the father of football coach and ex-husband Abraham Grant, and will be held today (Wednesday) starting at 6:00 p.m. The conference will be opened with the blessing of President Reuven (Ruby) Rivlin, and will host the first, second and third generations of the Holocaust. The conference will be broadcast live on Facebook and YouTube by the Schools Sports Association, which produces the event, and the conference is free, you can sign up for it at this link.

"Abraham really grew up in the shadow of the Holocaust," Scout Grant says of her ex-partner and the father of her two children.

"His father Meir was the most amazing man in the world, hopelessly optimistic. Happy during the day, but when night fell and darkness crept in, Abraham and his sisters witnessed their father's cries of terror. His father was born in Poland. One day the Germans came and asked 'Where are you?' Want to go ', to this camp or to Siberia. They went to Siberia, and there within a few months he buried his whole family. Eventually he survived in a cold of minus 40 degrees, the demon knows how, when first Meir's sister died and then his father died as a result. A nail that went into his hand, which became a big necrosis and infection. This little boy, Meir, lost his mother and father and everyone in Siberia. Against this background Abraham grew up. The Holocaust and the survival of his father and the Holocaust survivors is something that really burns in him. He found the graves of his whole family, he found his sister, he found after 30 years a son of his father's sister that he did not know existed. He is a true Holocaust researcher and deals with it throughout his being.



"Beyond that, when I look at Abraham as a character, I She thinks that from his father he took the quiet, the gentleness of the mind, the ability to receive the moment in the most special way possible, in a very non-judgmental and very generous way.

When his father died (October 2009 - Saturday) it was one of the biggest fractures. He just died, from some stupid infection. He underwent surgery to remove a stone from the kidney and died. It's just unbelievable. For us Meir as his name is - he was a man who was all light He always smiles, always humbly accepts reality, and always welcomes what he has. He loved his children and grandchildren on indescribable levels, they were his whole world. And Abraham inherited from him so many qualities. Meir was indeed the opposite of Abraham, the most uncompetitive man. And he accepts with equanimity what is happening to him, and yet Avraham managed to take from him the ability to deal more gently with the changes from Igra Rama to Bira Amikata and the most difficult and greatest stressful situations.

The theme of this year's "Beacon of Growth" conference is "The Power of Memory."

What is the power of memory for you?



"The meaning of memory imprints the idea of ​​eternal life. It is the infinite power. Because what is memory? It is to revive values. When we remember our parents, when we remember our grandparents, when we remember people who were dictators of history - that is where all our values ​​lie. Of memory is not only to remember the dead, but also to remember what we received from them when they were alive. That's why we called it 'the power of memory.' I look at my children and their coping in this period of the Corona, in complex periods in Abraham's and my career, and I can "To tell you that without a doubt the same wonderful qualities are embedded in their DNA that Meir, Avraham's father, was able to pass on to his generation of grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well. This thing is so deep and so exciting."



The familiar phrase "beacon of resurrection" has been replaced by the name of the conference "beacon of growth."

Abraham said in the past: "My father taught me that one can also grow from hell."



"During the day - his father was the happiest man in the world, and at night - only in sleep, only out of the subconscious, it was possible to recognize that he was a Holocaust survivor. He always smiled, was hospitable and had fun. He had a hard time talking about the Holocaust. "He didn't like it very much. He did not see Holocaust films. He ran away from it, hated it."

"It was difficult for him to talk about the Holocaust."

Your documentaries on television have often touched on the Holocaust, such as the episode of "Lost" on the Internet, in which the late Holocaust survivor Israel Orzach went on a journey with you after 70 years to find the man who was the foreman in the Nazi concentration camp and save him from certain death. .



"fell to my staff and the wonderful privilege to be there for Israel Aorzc legendary, and for him to fulfill his part of the dream at the age of 90. We did not find the Nazi who helped him that he wanted to thank him, but found the story behind the Jewish activist who helped him.

A pretty dramatic story.

For Israel Orzach, he ended this story, and closed this circle.

I remember he said to me, 'Scout, I'm so happy, I'm a whole person today.

I went through very exciting things with him.

At one point, he was really weak and tired from the journey, he was really sick.

And I remember I took off his shoes, massaged him and hugged him.

He was very excited.

It was a huge privilege to get to know this man and his family and his victory.

Victory through life.

He not only lived, he established a family for the glory of the State of Israel.

He has a son and a daughter, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A year after our journey he passed away.

I really liked it.

For me, Israel Orzach was like a gift I received. "In



what ways is the Holocaust present in your life today?



" First of all, the Holocaust is present in my place in "Lost," we had some Holocaust stories.

Second, I am very sensitive to the elderly, and extremely sensitive to Holocaust survivors.

I am generally sensitive to this issue, and I am also a very serious Holocaust consumer, there is no book about the Holocaust that I have not read, and there is no event that I do not see.

I am involved in this field.

And I'm very attached to Abraham, and I went through all things with him.

I went through his pain with him in this place. "
