Even though I thank Hashem that I was born afterwards, I experienced some of it. I heard stories constantly of my parents experiences seeing my father z’l crying when he talked about his wife and two daughters killed in Aucshwitz. I visited my father’s labor camp at Mauthausen, Austria when being around 10 years old, and seeing the lookout towers, prisons and crematorium ovens. I heard my mother a’h tell stories of her working for I.G. Farben filling grenades.December 15, 2021 11:51 am at 11:51 am #2041971

Originally he was called in as witness and found an excuse for not appearing. However then he had no excuse and two policemen came to get him.December 15, 2021 11:51 am at 11:51 am #2041977
