Sixty-five years after his tale of survival, Meir Rosenfeld is still scared of one thing: that the stories of Holocaust survivors will be forgotten. That’s why the 90-year-old survivor agreed to take part in a testimony for the Ledorot website, run by Yad vashem and the Ministery of senior citizens.




As part of the project, Ledorot sends student volunteers like Adi Weitzhandler to record survivors’ stories at their homes. The Jerusalem Post filmed the first meeting between Adi and Meir.
