“When we arrived in Auschwitz-Birkenau they opened the doors of the trucks. We were half-dead but we had to quickly stand five in a row. There was a man with a stick in his hand. With one movement of his hand he sent the people right or left. My mother, my little brother and my sister went left. I never saw them again”
- Lilly Ebert, Hungarian Jew, Auschwitz survivor
“We got out of the train and everything went so fast: left, right, right, left. Men separated from women. Children torn from the arms of mothers. The elderly chased like cattle. My mother ran over to me and grabbed me by the shoulders, and she told me “Leibele, I’m not going to see you again. Take care of your brother.”"
- Leo Schneiderman, deported from Lodz, Poland

I can imagine the mind is in overdrive, suzie..all that took place there..must be eerie, and very haunting..
Very interesting and touching photos! When I visited the site, I imagined these places the same way. I felt bad then and I feel bad now while watching these photos.
