Shana Tova from Holocaust survivor Saul Dreier! Born in Kraków, Poland, Saul was the only member of his immediate family to survive the Shoah. He survived the Kraków ghetto and several concentration camps, including Plaszów, Auschwitz, Mauthausen, and Linz. After the war, Saul was sent to a DP camp in Italy where he learned to play the drums. In 2014, he put those drum skills to use when he founded the Holocaust Survivor Klezmer Band with fellow Floridian and survivor Ruby Sosnowicz. Here is Saul blowing the shofar at the Kotel in 2018. Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and sweet new year.
