    I like it, because it contextualises the meaning of survival (i.o. family). I do understand those who can not get themselves to like it too. It actually shows the true loss of the shoa, because many of the people killed would have been able to dance too. I don't think it is disrespectful. I am sure there can be an urge to dance for those few who made it in the face of so much overwhelming death. However Gloria Gayner's lyrics are at times a little bit unhelpful because she suggests a survival of her own actions. Mr Korman is clear that it was but luck if you watch pt 3. My own father's reason of after-life in Germany (sic!) was precisely "I survived," plus "I shall remind Germans as along as I live of their deeds & live where Hitler didn't want us." A beautiful family.
