  • So, as many of you know, I've spent my childhood years in a Warsaw ghetto

  • where... my almost my entire family was murdered

  • along with about 350.000 other Polish Jews.

  • And people sometimes will ask me

  • whether that experience had anything to do with my work for animals,

  • it didn't have a little to do with my work for animals,

  • it had everything to do with my work for animals.

  • Throughout that ordeal, before we find ourselves

  • by the slogan, "Never again"

  • it was an article of faith that our sacrifice would not be in vain.

  • That the world would be so shocked by what was done to us.

  • That they would never allow atrocities like these to be perpetrated again.

  • In 1975, after I emigrated to the United states,

  • I happened to visit a slaughterhouse,

  • where I saw very frightened animals

  • subjected to horrendous crowding conditions,

  • while awaiting their deaths.

  • Just as my family members were in the notorious Treblinka death camp.

  • I saw the same efficient and emotionless killing routine as in Treblinka.

  • I saw the neat piles of hearts, hooves and other body parts

  • just so reminiscent of the piles of Jewish hair, glasses, and shoes in Treblinka.

  • And I recall the allusion by famed Yiddish writer, Isaac Bashevis Singer that,

  • "For the animals, all men are Nazis and life is an eternal Treblinka"

  • and then it finally dawned on me,

  • "Never again"

  • is not about what others should not do to us

  • "Never again" means that

  • we must never again perpetrate mass atrocities against other living beings.

  • That we must never again raise animals for food or for any other form of exploitation

  • and that's when I became an activist for animal rights.

So, as many of you know, I've spent my childhood years in a Warsaw ghetto
