Gal Gadot Says She Feels A Strong Connection With Holocaust Survivors As A Woman Whose Grandfather Was An Auschwitz Survivor

Hollywood star Gal Gadot, best known for her portrayal as ‘Wonder Woman‘ in DC universe movies, commemorated Holocaust survivors with a touching Instagram post on the International Holocaust Remembrance Day while revealing that her grandfather and his family were Auschwitz survivors.

In honor of the day, Gadot posted a photo of herself taken at the Hall of Remembrance at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum and added a touching message to remember the survivors. In her message the actor clarified the photo by saying that she took a day off while shooting ‘Wonder Women 1984‘ to go to light a candle at the Auschwitz wall in honor of her grandfather and his family.

Tel Aviv-based actor continued her caption by referring to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic:

“Watching this horrible pandemic take so many lives of holocaust survivors all over the world, I feel a stronger connection and an obligation to make sure we all remember.”

Stating that challenging times as we are on right now made us realize how humans fragile are, Gadot highlighted the importance of helping each other. Then the Hollywood star concluded her message as follows:

“It is a reminder to us all that even in the darkest times, we must stand together and be the light we need. #WeRemember and may we never forget.”

Back in 2017, Gadot revealed during an interview with Rolling Stone magazine that her grandfather and the rest of his family were imprisoned in the Auschwitz concentration camp. Even though he was able to return to Israel, his entire family was murdered in the gas chambers at that camp, while his wife found a way to escape before the Nazi invasion. Regarding the issue, she stated:

“He affected me a lot. After all the horrors he’d seen, he was like this damaged bird, but he was always hopeful and positive and full of love.”
