THE IMAGE of white tablecloths and the smell of food remains vivid to Martin Weiss to this day.
“Right after the war, a restaurant owner invited us in. He put us at nice tables with white tablecloths, then he fed all of us.
“I don’t mention this too often, but that was the first type of kindness that I had experienced and it made a big impact on me. It does show you that not all people are bad.”
Weiss was deported at age 15, struggling to survive while many members of his family were killed, and later immigrating to the US in 1946.
