Legacy sung by Judy Tellerman from the album, Songs of the Code. music link - cdbaby.com"Legacy" was commissioned for the InternationalGathering of Descendants of Survivors of the Shoah, Palmer House, Chicago. "Legacy was performed by Judy Tellerman for the May, 2008 Illinois Days of Remembrance Holocaust Observance, Old State Capitol, Springfield, IL.Ms. Tellerman comments about Legacy; "In keeping with Jewish tradition martyrdom is not sought for its own sake; itis not a negation of life; and death is not a desired solution. It is an enforced death characterized by a positive, dignified attitude toward life, warm embracement of family and community, righteous indignation, and the courage of one's own convictions.""I dedicate this song to the six million innocent Jewish souls who perished in the Holocaust and to all Jews throughout history who have been murdered because Judaism represents the belief that all are created equal in the image of one almighty God who has granted us the gift of humanity. May their memory be a blessing for us. To my older sister, Pearl, who died during the Holocaust, I never saw a picture of your beautiful face, and to all mybeautiful relatives, my grandparents, whose faces I never saw, you have a safe place within my heart. In the Bible it says, "The angel called him from the heavens and said, 'Abraham, Abraham!' And Abraham answered, "Hineni" ((Heb.: Here I am.) Legacy is my way of saying. "Here we are," and that we should all stand together to prevent genocide."Please direct comments to Ms. Tellerman athttp://www.youtube.com/user/judithtellerman
