Charlene Schiff: Everyone loves a child, and everyone does feel pain when children suffer.
My father was gone. I didn't know where my sister was. And when I woke up standing in
a river and my mother wasn't there--it was like I was not living anymore. It never entered
my mind that I would find myself all alone in the world. This is a void and a loss that
should never have happened. Anyone who was caught in World War II grew up very, very
fast because we had no choice. The pictures of these children--and there are a number
of them--this is a call not to be inactive, not to be indifferent. A picture they say
is with a thousand words, and in this case it's worth a million words.
