Thanks to My Mother
By Schoschana Rabinovici
Later she and her mom get sent to a concentration camp after fighting against a crowd of Jews being forced to the left, the left being death. At this camp the woman are forced to shave their heads and suffer from hunger and the cold. But even in these harsh conditions, her moms courage and will to survive, brightens up Susie's future or survival. Even when everyone she knew where dying, and when she fell ill from depression, her mom never gave up and even stopped Susie from becoming a mussleman. A mussleman is someone who gives up on survival and life itself.
Three real facts
- Woman had to shave their heads in the concentration camp, and only had light head scarves to cover it from the cold.
- Jews who were sick and didn't recover in a week were taken away to be killed.
- anyone on the death march who fell away from the rest of the group were shot and killed, many died trying to get to bread that was away from the group.
