Holy Land Central Melting Pot

Coffee'ing in Tel Aviv this morning, I glanced over at this older woman sitting at the adjoining table. And noticed her arm.

Sometimes you forget things like that here in HLC. That there are people - your neighbors - who at one point in time lived the reality of work camps, death marches, gas chambers and tattoed arm numbers.

You forget but I can testify that when you glance over and remember, it's shocking.
