Simon Maroko - February 19 & 26, 1986

Um, I'm sure I thought about my relatives. That's uh, one of the things you are referring to. I felt I was stepping my father's footsteps who had been the chief cantor. In fact I was uh, singing as best as I could remember the, the, the melodies that he was using during the service.

What were your feelings at that point about surviving?

About surviving?
