Powerful story—gave me goosebumps.

My heart bled for the grandmother's pain in this story--and others like her that lived during that horrific time.
Terrible truth beautifully told. Compelling.
Well written, held my attention. Very nicely done.

A very compelling and heart-rendering story. Nicely crafted.
I remember seeing this imagery in the movie Schindler's List, and your piece brought a great fictional backstory to this image. It engaged me from start to finish. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

Wonderful story--and I just have to give a shout-out to your proper use of 'myriad' in the first paragraph.

This was very visual and tender, quite satisfying, with the chill at the end a masterful touch.

This was a well-written story. I like how they found the coat from the picture in the end. Plus, I like how you revealed that her grandma had been at Auschwitz without just saying, "and Grandma was a prisioner in Auschwitz" or something along those lines.
