than fifty years have passed since the Holocaust ended.
During this time I have not lived a single day or night
without unbidden flashbacks and recurring nightmares
that wrack me with painful memories and overwhelm me
with depression and guilt.
am seventeen years old, huddling with my sister and
her seven year old daughter, my niece Felunia, beside
the rail road tracks at Maydanek. We have barely crawled
out of the fetid cattle car that has brought us here
from the Umschlagplatz and now my sister is pushing
me away, crying, begging me to leave them, to line
up in the last labor unit being formed from our transport.
To live while they died. Through her tears she is
saying, Do whatever you can to survive, so you can
survived Hell. I am a living witness to its existence.
Yet today, there are people who deny that such horrors
ever happened. It is a time when our youth refuses to
believe that human beings would ever subject other human
beings to such suffering again. I have struggled for
the strength and courage to deliberately invoke the
terror and horror that those events seared into my memory
and to record them in written words. My witness is just
one story. Six million other stories will never be told.
My family, my neighbors, my friends, and the people
whose names I never knew, who did not survive, must
be remembered by my children, my grandchildren and the
future generations to come. This testament is dedicated
to the memory of my sister, Channa, and is the fulfillment
of my promise to her; to tell what happened to the Jewish
to anyone who will listen.
