Auschwitz memories

I know because then we go into--run out of time.

Sure I could tell you that uh, how they loaded us up on Limanowskiego Street, and we all went to the wagons, and then from there we went to Auschwitz and there were people dying and crying. And then when we got to Auschwitz they opened the thing and everything was, became black in front of our eyes. We see these ??? SS men in the, in the uniforms with the big dogs and the lines here and there and people dressed in prison, in prison clothes, you know. I can go on and go on and tell you about this over here, but when, when do I, do I stop or when do I keep going on. And I keep going and then the, the Dr. Mengele stayed in one lane and says, you go here and you go there, you go here and you go there. We didn't know what was happening. And you could smell the burning bodies, you know, a mile away.

Before you...

You'd have to sit here a long, long time if I start going and going and going, and going.
