Today's Inspiration: This 96-Year-Old Holocaust Survivor Grandma Fronts A Metal Band
Inge Ginsberg was born in Austria and lived quite a full life. The 96-year-old fled from Austria during the Holocaust and settled in a refugee camp in Switzerland. Now, many decades later she's fronting a death metal band.
Inge was the focus of a new spotlight by The New York Times Opinion section, and the accompanying video, which you can see below, is an incredibly moving and touching piece about how a woman in her 90s choses to live out the rest of her days as opposed to waiting to die. Inge has quite a strong spirit, and when friends saw some poetry she was writing, they felt the only proper soundtrack for some of the dark themes Inge was talking about was to start a metal band. The video does a far better job of telling her story than I ever could:
And in case you're curious what the music sounds like…
Kudos, Inge! We can't wait to get in the pit.
