“I had the honor to meet two wonderful ladies: Ruth and Sylvia Schkolnik had to leave Austria in 1938 and managed to survive Nazi persecution. Just met the both of them in Tel Aviv and we talked about life and music. The Central Committee of Jews from Austria and the Pensioners’ Association were founded to support former Austrian Holocaust survivors in Israel.” (Marcus Ratka)
