Meet Alison. At 93. Registered blind. Quietly spirited. An important presence in the life of so many in need. And perhaps now, provocative to your own soul’s sense of longing.

I first met Alison whilst interviewing Holocaust Survivors in front of a large silent crowd of school children. You could have heard a pin drop.

Pay attention. She may move your sense of a life fully lived. Her quiet and certain presence was somewhere beyond extraordinary. We agreed to meet later. At a quiet nursing home hidden somewhere in the quiet leafy suburbs of North London.

 

NOTE: Alison passed away in 2011. 3rd November 2013 would have been her 100th Birthday.
