What Else She Said
[Being discriminated against] definitely shaped what I do now, it shaped my career, which is looking at discrimination and human rights abuses. And a lot of things have - having to learn about the holocaust, having to learn about the Bolsheviks, having been in a situation where I was discriminated against for many, many years - it was definitely what shaped how and what I do... We're taught Tikkun Olam, and I definitely have that guilt and the idea that if I don't take a stand, who will? And it's important to protect whomever - the minority, majority - and never to stand by. Also never to forget where we came from and what we put up with.
