Bubby will not stop talking about her experiences as a holocaust survivor in order to make people aware of the dangers of not taking a stand.
Holocaust is one of the worst human tragedies to have happened in the last century. Anybody who had to go through it garnered intense psychological and physical trauma. But still, people like Bubby on TikTok, through a series of videos, want to keep talking about the experience because they do not want people to forget the trauma that they underwent during that time. She herself wants to continue sharing those memories so that people never forget how the ignorance of some people made an entire group of people live through experiences and indignities that should never be inflicted on humans.
Bubby, a holocaust survivor shares her experiences through the TikTok platform of Miriam Ezagui. Bubby now is 94 years old but in her teen years was taken to the Auschwitz concentration camp. In the video, she says that the memories related to that time in her life are painful but even then she would not stop sharing her stories. For her, those memories made her who she is despite the cruelty they might contain.
Ezagui asked Bubby whether it was hard for her to be asked questions about Auschwitz, and the latter bravely replied by saying, "I live in two worlds. the past and the present. So it's hard, but I have to face it. It's what happened." Ezagui further informed the viewers that her Bubby was taken to the camp at the age of 15 and now is one of the few survivors left of that horrible holocaust. Throughout her life, Bubby has spoken about Holocaust and its impact on her community. Bubby also explained that even though the memories of the holocaust are haunting for her, she still feels good talking about them, because she wants people to not only know about the atrocities but also to never forget about them. She says, "It's good," because the world has to know what happened during World War II... People should be aware it should never happen again."
In another video, she explained her role in establishing founding memorials like the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., where her story has been featured. Bubby also shares her personal losses in the videos. She entered into a romantic relationship with a boy who was also in the same camp. Both of them communicated with each other through an electrified fence. During their imprisonment, they promised each other that if they survived they will find each other again. The boy told Bubby that he will communicate with the radio to reach her. Bubby heard the radio every day after making it out of the camp but he made no contact. Eventually, she accepted that he did not make it.
Despite the losses and hurt that Bubby endured during that time, she remains open-hearted in her discussions. She does not recount the events with any negative intention instead she does it for the sake of increasing awareness. Her aim is to make people aware that such a tragedy happened and people should take lessons from it. Through her own work, she wants to inspire people to speak up when they see something is wrong in spite of having naysayers around them.
