סיפור ממקום אחר

 

 

 

    

A short dialog I had with a friend…

 

 Q.       What is to be gained by hearing your story?

 A.      The audience participates in a suspenseful and fascinating experience.

 

Q.       That's all?

A.      Whoever hears the story of my capture and life as a POW, will understand how

          life can suddenly change, from one moment to the next, and place you in the most challenging and difficult circumstances. Situations in which SURVIVAL is not a television show…it’s for real!

 

Q.       And then what??

A.      When someone suddenly finds himself captured or caught up in his own private hell, he will have some idea of what to expect there, from the previous stories of others. Hopefully, he’ll learn from those past experiences and put the information to good use during his own internment.  It's for a very good reason that special army forces all over the world go through captivity training.  The mental and emotional condition of anyone going through a traumatic experience such as mine is governed, to a certain extent, by this prior knowledge. The struggle, however, is not only during the traumatic event itself – it continues long after.
