I read further down that your son was called Stephan and my son has the same name! I am a spiritual person (and a Reiki Healer) and I feel I am supposed to meet you. I would really like to bring you some good home cooked jewish food if you would like, just let me know what your favourites are.

Warm regards

Susan Brady

I would so love to meet you if at all possible, as in the Jewish culture we all know someone connected. G-d bless you for you are an amazing lady who I will always remember.

Warm regards

Susan Brady

I am to give a talk to a ladies faith group on “The Power of a Thankful Heart”. In my research, I found your story and will pass it on to the women who attend. You are such an inspiration and you truly have discovered God in your music. He is in every note, every melodious rapture of sound which wraps around your heart and mind. And to think that the music of this earth is a prelude to the experience of music in heaven. Thank you Alice, we can learn much from you. You have made beautiful music through your instruments of love and forgiveness that you bestow towards your fellow human beings.

You are a treasure to the world and an example of the human potential for forgiveness and love. Thank you for your long and beautiful life that is such a moving inspiration to me. When I posted your story on my FaceBook page, I remarked, “I want to be like Alice.” I can think of no better tribute. I wish you a happy 108th birthday on Saturday. God bless you.

This little documentary is a blessing. I can’t wait to share it with my family. How marvelous that Alice emerged from Nazi horror with her mind, soul, spirit, heart and artistry in tact. I’m sure that her dauntless joy and moral fortitude helped to shield and shelter her little boy as well. Hatred is only defeated by living and loving above it, and Alice is living proof of this potential. Her unscathed, unjaundiced view of the world is as miraculous as a biblical wonder. She is like Shadrach walking out of a furnace without a hair on his head singed or smoke in his garments, or like a latter day Daniel. When she says that life is beautiful every day, her face radiates that beauty. Those who love her should hear her in another clip where she performs a Schubert Impromptu with such tenderness and taste that you weep to have missed hearing her in her prime. God bless this dear lady and precious artist “ev-e-ry day, ev-e-ry day.” (Alice, when it comes to music being your only interest, Ich auch! Moi aussi! Yashar-koach b’shalom. And Todah Rabah! -Roland)

I am also sad by what you endured, a taste of the worst horrors of human existence. I am an Evangelical Christian, but struggle with why Our Lord let Satan dispense such atrocities on your people. In my life, I have a sister who died of cancer at 49, and a brother suffering of pancreatic cancer at 44. I accept Jesus’ will, but do not always understand it. Watching you play the piano at 107 with your smile and genuine love of people and life has provided me with a sense of peace that radiates God’s glory. Thank you, and may God Bless you. Mike

Praise the LORD for the gift of music! May you come to know the creator of music JESHUA who is JESUS CHRIST the LORD who say: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the FATHER but by ME.”
