Alice Herz-Sommer

Alice Herz-Sommer, who I wrote about in August, died this week, aged 110.

A survivor of the Holocaust, she cultivated a commitment to see beauty everywhere, and a deep interest in the lives of others. In the midst of our ordinary, everyday worries perhaps the memory of this woman – who knew such difficulties and brought such grace and gratitude to her life – can help us to see our lives, our work, and our frustrations with new, and more hopeful, eyes.
