Yet there are those ill-intentioned people in the world trying to make the young ones believe this never happened. What is their agenda?

Thanks for sharing this with us Harry!

Most of us want bigger and better power tools, large tool boxes filled with more than our share of the best hand tools, and we can never have enough space.

His FACTORY consists of a fret saw, tweezers, a little knife, some sandpaper and a machine to drill holes. Everything except the machine to drill holes fits in a card board box on his kitchen table. I'd love to see his machine to drill holes, it's probably a small drill press that we would consider obsolete.

This man was sent to hell and returned yet there seems to be only goodness in his heart. A lot of his work is to honor those unfortunate individuals who never made it out of the camps like his family. 92 years old and just wants his art to go to a museum with his name on it one day. WOW!

Thanks Harry. It's good to be reminded that it's not so much what we have, but more what we do with what we have that counts.
