Auschwitz

Posted on 04/08/2013 @ 02:17 PM

“One of the exhibits we saw in Auschwitz was a pile of prosthetic arms, legs and metal from wheelchairs, and anything of value from people with disabilities. When I saw that pile of items, I knew that the people they belonged to were the ones who went straight to the gas chambers. Later on, I saw a boy from another contingent in a wheel chair, and I knew that had he been here 70 years ago, his wheel chair would’ve been in that pile of items and he would’ve been gone.” – Amanda Freedman

“Today everything I learned about the Holocaust seemed real and I was proud to be with my Jewish community. I have never been more proud to be Jewish.” – Lauren Butowsky

“Getting the opportunity to go into the gas chambers, but to come out alive, was a privilege that many of our Jewish ancestors could not experience. Walking into the gas chamber and looking out a barbed wire window where March of the Living participants were proudly standing was a symbol of Jewish continuity and our strength to live on.” – Genna Fudin, Connecticut Valley Region
