    I'm taking a Holocaust class at a local community college. I wrote down this list that a survivor named Eline Hoekstra Dresden gave during a speech that we watched. Thought you guys might like to hear it.
    Her "Tools for Survival" list:

    Be alert, not paranoid.
    Be optimistic, but realistic.
    Find strength in faith (whichever).
    Recognize hidden danger.
    Do not ever show weakness.
    Listen to "gut" feelings.
    Use humor daily.
    Draw on inner strength.
    Take care of your health.
    Stay productive.
    Don't let your guard down.
    Face danger with courage.
    Share your fears with others.
    Do not ever give up hope.
    Before going to sleep, imagine better times.
