How I View The Holocaust:
Electric Fencepost; Auschwitz
The uniforms of ordinary prisoners were not lined and not tailored and often little more than rags.
Tattoos of Prisoner #'s
Zanne Farbstein's Survival Story.
Simply Because We were Jews
The only people that knew her name were my parents. I was a little girl then. They took me to the house--my father actually--he brought me into the house, and that was the last time I ever saw my father.
I was hidden for two years. I never went outside. I was not allowed to go outside because I didn't belong to the family, and the woman who hid me sacrificed a lot to take me. Because had the Nazis discovered she was hiding a Jew, whether it was a little girl or an adult it didn't matter, they would have killed her on the spot. Of course, as well as me. I was allowed sometimes to go out in the backyard, but for the most part that was my home for two years.
I was never mistreated--ever! But I also was never loved, and I really lost a great part of my childhood--simply because we were Jews. _________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________
