Questioning faith in the parsha

Dara Horn: In the Image

Under the guise of a school project, Naomi had once “interviewed” Bill Landsmann, and he had given her all the stupid details of his life.  Born in Vienna, no brothers or sisters.  Left Vienna with his father for Amsterdam, then left Amsterdam for America.  His mother remained behind in a hospital and apparently died.  There was nothing in his story to thrill the American moviegoer, no tattooed numbers on anyone’s arm.  But the real story of Bill Landsmann’s life would have disappointed Naomi…more than she or anyone else could have imagined.  And that is why, instead, he showed people nothing but slides.
