After I posted that last message, I realized that what you're saying here now is what the situation was. Sorry about that. But I am glad that you were interested enough to search for it and make it available for people who live outside of the New York viewing area.

Thanks for your help, Julia!

OH I did appreciate the link as they had the story on the link (pretty much everything you mentioned), that's why I went and looked for a working video. I suspect their website blocked video when they realized my IP was outside their viewing area?? A lot of media websites do that, I guess, too much competition from streaming media? I doubt it's picking on me personally, haha. But for those in a viewing area it should work for you (especially if you are a cable subscriber and/or get your internet from cable, which I don't... I'm too cheap.). Our newspaper does the same stunt of disappearing video on their website unless I log in to show that I'm a card-carrying, dues paying, bona fide, dead tree newspaper subscriber (instant open captioned, newspapers are, wooo hooo!).

I do not know why you had a problem, Julia. I just re-checked the link from the SparkPeople website and it links to the same thing that you found. It was an ABC TV news item.

The caption, too, was the same. What is striking and also true form for most Holocaust survivors, is the resilience of these people and how they want to live their life to the fullest, no matter how. This man happens to do it as a ski instructor. Even though initially the idea was for him to get a relatively reduced rate to ski for that day. Then he was picked as an instructor. And the rest, for him, is history.

I hope that in spite of your initial difficulties you appreciated the link.

Hmmmpf... the website has the video greyed out. I must be from the pond scum neck of the woods. Gonna go hunting for a different website... found the same station's YouTube upload and it's a bit more accessible except the captioning was strange...

I always love reading about the resiliency of Holocaust survivors, and how they choose to live life to the fullest. It is always so humbling.
