They branded that number on Livia Rebak’s arm. Her son, Oded Rebak, and her grandson, Daniel Philosof, chose to have those numbers tattooed on their own arms. It serves as a reminder to never forget the Holocaust.
When I was in high school, two of my teachers had these tattoos on their forearms. But I don’t think I was capable of comprehending at that time. Now I can’t say I “comprehend” it exactly, but the enormity of it is overwhelming.
