Mike Nichols

In 1939 a young Jewish boy of eight fled Berlin with his parents and came to the United States.He spoke no English but became one of the most powerful and accomplished icons of our entertainment world. Mike Nichols was not only a genius but it seems that he touched the minds and hearts of not only everyone who worked with him but also audiences. His deft hand can be seen on so many monumental films and plays. We may never see his kind again but it makes me wonder about all the talent that died at the camps during the period of the Holocaust. How many sonatas were not written,poems not read and millions of thoughts and actions that literally went up in flames? Thank you Mike for who you were and for reminding me again why my little voice against hatred and prejudice must continue.
