2. What happened in 1957/1996?
3. Why do you think their love could last for so long?
From that day forward, the sweet image of the girl would appear to him in moments of unhappiness. Her eyes, her words, her thoughtfulness, her red apple, all came in his dreams. His family died in the war. The life he had known disappeared, but this one memory was alive and gave him hope.
In 1957 in the United States, two adults, both immigrants, are on a blind date. "And where were you during the war?" the woman asks.
"I was in a concentration camp in Germany," the man answers.
"I remember I used to throw apples over the fence to a boy who was in a concentration camp," she says.
With a feeling of shock, the man says, "And did that boy say to you one day, 'Don't bring an apple anymore because I am being sent to another camp?'"
"Why, yes," she answers, "but how could you possibly know that?"
He looks into her eyes and says, "I was that young boy."
There is a long silence, and then he continues, "I was taken away from you then, and I don't ever want to be without you again. Will you marry me?"
They embrace one another as she says, "Yes."
On Valentine's Day 1996, on national TV show, this same man affirmed his never-ending love to his wife for forty years. "You fed me in the concentration camp," he said. "You fed me throughout all these years; now, I remain hungry if only for your love."
