Elli's Visit to SVA

Tuesday, October 01, 2019

SVA had the honor of welcoming a very special guest, Ms. Livia Bitton-Jackson (aka Elli), the author of the memoir I have Lived a Thousand Years: Growing up in the Holocaust, along with her daughter, Emily and her granddaughter, Laura, to SVA for a Q and A session to discuss her book and her personal feelings and thoughts about current world issues. Many of our SVA students have read Ms. Bitton-Jackson’s memoir during their freshman year while studying the holocaust. During the Q and A, she made it a point to express how important love and education are. “We are not born to hate. People are born open-hearted and everything depends on education. What you are told, that’s what you believe. If you are taught love for every human being, then you love every human being. And even though I was not taught love, but because of my experience my heart is full of love because that’s the only solution. That’s the only solution for peace and that’s the only solution for happiness and I want you to be very happy. Always be happy.”  Many of the girls were moved to tears when coming face to face with Ms. Bitton-Jackson. Overall, it was an incredibly moving experience for all. It seemed the one thing that everyone took away from Ms. Bitton-Jackson’s visit was the importance of love and respect for every human being and that when you love and respect others, the world becomes a much better place.
