Just the right place for Dad, right? In a split second I was torn from my mother without understanding what was happening or having a chance to say good bye. They duly arrived at Treblinka - its pretty station with a clock and fake ticket window a cover for its barbarity. We just couldn't tell so I don't think she was 9 months pregnant. Every ounce of our being was needed for survival and survival alone. There were only two or three Jewish families living there, so most of our best friends were Gentiles.

A smuggler took their small group through the woods. Later they told me that everyone was dead, suffocated, including my sister. A new life it was, but rarely a settled one. There were several groups of armed Jews in both Eastern and Western Europe. It is an important fact, that Szilvásy's and Deseő's statement came half a year later than the arrest.

His 'invisibility' had saved him. But being a mother with a child or pregnant, or just holding the little hand of a child, meant instant death. The stories of Báthory's serial murders are verified by the testimony of more than 300 witnesses and survivors as well as physical evidence and the presence of horribly dead, dying and imprisoned girls found at the time of her arrest. Abductions were said to have occurred as well. As well as passive resistance, there were many instances of active resistance; including jews in certain ghettos taking up arms against their Nazi oppressors. Must have been over hundred people in there. Báthory and four collaborators were accused of and killing hundreds of young women between 1590 and 1610.

For all his efforts to leave the past behind, the memories of slaughter would never release their grip. Was the treatment better or worse? Our existence in Birkenau, the hell on earth, was above all very precarious. We were permitted to leave the ghetto for two hours every day to do grocery shopping. Preben Munch-Nielson is a prime example of passive resistance. Children would take off their stars of David and go beg for some food, since they had none. In this time period, if someone was harmed, or someone even stole a chicken, a letter of complaint was written.

He spent time in a camp for dispossessed persons, making a living dealing on the black market. He also did extra work as a tanner, processing rabbit skins for a camp boss. After the Anschluss of Austria in March, 1938, vicious, discriminatory laws against the Jews were enacted and little by little we were stripped most of our civil and human rights. Blissfully, the barracks were heated with huge, round, hot water pipes running through the rooms. My oldest brother Jenö was murdered along with 400 hundred other Hungarian Jewish men because they were in a hospital, sick with typhus, and the withdrawing Hungarian army instead of taking these sick men back with them to Hungary, they burned down the hospital in Dorosits -- with the sick men inside.

They dared to follow their conscience and refused to be bullied into indifference or hatred. All I know is that we marched and starved, starved and marched for there was no supply of anything for us. Lack of adequate food and medical supply, lack of freedom, lack of privacy made life seem more and more hopeless every day. Then finally we arrived somewhere but we didn't know where. Yaja was the only one who could soothe him, and her death from cancer was a terrible blow.

The Gestapo took me to the camp in a car. The two of us, together, lived through many harrowing experiences until the liberation of our labour camp by the Russian Army in March 1944. . From 1585 to 1595, Báthory bore four children. In 1940, the Nazi troops also overran the tiny Netherlands and we were occupied. Jan Karski, a Polish resistance worker, met with Roosevelt in July 1943 and described what. Joseph's family went into hiding at another farm.

Just the contrary, our real troubles had just begun. That piece of bread was crawling with lice and you shook them off the bread and put it in your mouth and ate it. The number of transports was falling. The Russians and Americans were closing in on the Germans and they kept running from them, dragging us along with them. With the invasion of Poland by the Nazis, we, Jews were hounded, thrown out of our homes and sent to a ghetto in another town.
