Ruth Posner: Passover before the War

My father was a humanist - socialist with very strong sense of human values but without any beliefs in established religions.

He was interested in the Tribal History and the historical aspect of Passover but not in GOD.

Maybe this is the reason why now I am so interested in studying Baruch Spinoza the 17th century Dutch Jewish philosopher who rejected organised religions!

I remember how sad I was that my grandparents never visited us because we did not keep a kosher house and I adored my grandmother and used to visit her often.

The main tragedy in my childhood was the fact that I never felt different from anyone else until Hitler came to power and made me feel different and punished me for being different!
