Death March From Jaworzno

Now let me ask you a question, I'll take you back to Auschwitz for a second. The death marches began at the end of January, right? January 20th?

The uh, from where? From...

Marching out of Auschwitz.

Oh, Posen. Out of Jaworzno?

From Jaworzno, did you go right on the death march from Jaworzno?

Yeah, that's where we started, yeah. Out of Jaworzno.

Oh, so they didn't take you back to Auschwitz first? You went right to...

No, no, no. From Jaworzno.

All right, so you left sometime in January...


and they just assembled you and said marching and anybody who stops will be shot.

Well, you, by that time you already know what, what the score is, you know.
