Despite living through such dark times and suffering unspeakable tragedy at the hands of Nazi Germany, Holocaust survivor Sigmund Rolat has taken the higher road. Despite witnessing humanity at its most evil in his youth in wartime Poland, he is an incurably positive thinker.

In speaking with him, it’s hard not to be impressed by his lucidity and constructive outlook.
