Ansaldi says: “Tell people to stay at home! How many years did you hide in a well?”
The grandmother is heard saying: “Three years! Without bathing or anything.”
When the grandmother is asked if she thinks people are ok at home she says to her grand-daughter: “There is no comparison!”
Ansaldi swrote: “My grandmother (a Holocaust survivor) told me ‘I spent three years hiding in an underground well so they did not kill me and two years in the ghetto. Without bathing and almost no food. Can’t people spend two weeks at home? “
She also added: “We talk a lot about what’s going on. She is not afraid for herself but for us. Let’s take care of our grandparents. Mine, everyone’s. Those who are vulnerable and those who are healthy who may be affected. Everything has a solution except death. This is a war and the enemy is invisible.”
It is unclear where the grandmother was during the Holocaust.
Ansaldi shared the clip on her Instagram profile where she has an army of 943,000 followers.
Netizen ‘solvillarrealok’ wrote: “Hug her and kiss her on my behalf.”
Instagram follower ‘moldavskyroverto’ said: “She couldn’t be more adorable.”
The Argentinian government has urged citizens in the country to stay at home and avoid social interaction while the president Mr Alberto Fernandez and his cabinet are reportedly considering a total and obligatory quarantine.
