Geddy Lee’s Holocaust survival story

Actually, it’s his parents’ story. And, warning — it will make you cry:

And they’re both survivors — of THREE camps, in all. In fact, it’s how they met, as pre-teens. And his mother’s mother is the reason the whole family survived — she kept them together, and his mother later did the same after his father died, when Geddy was 12.

I get chills thinking that if either of those families had been wiped out, we would have no Geddy, and no Rush. And this song, in particular, would not exist either:

Shame on the deniers. And no forgetting, EVER.
