These guys are a band. No joking.

Saul and Ruby are both in their 80s, they’re both Holocaust survivors and living the dream in Florida.

 

It’s been 70 years already and playing music is helping them reconnect with the childhood that was taken from them. Saul plays the drums. Ruby plays accordion.

They didn’t just survive. They thrived. And they continue to day after day after day.

These Holocaust survivors made sure that their life doesn’t get wasted just because of a horrible event in the past. They can teach us a lesson you know. We should all chase our dreams and our passions, no matter how wild they may seem.
