If it's right, it doesn't matter who says it. Nick Clegg, after visiting Auschwitz: 'we cannot remember and re-remember these horrors enough'.
29. Renee Salt:
Lodz ghetto inmates were tormented by hunger, exhaustion and fear every day.
As the Nazi extermination programme accelerated, ghetto inmates were deported to death camps en masse and slaughtered, the last train leaving on 29 August 1944.
Renee Salt was sent to Lodz in 1942, aged 13, from another ghetto in her Polish hometown of Zdunska Wola, with her parents and an aunt.
Her younger sister had already been taken away by the Gestapo.
"The overcrowding, starvation and disease were just appalling. People were dying in the streets...
"We came with nothing - we didn't have a piece of underwear to change into. The day we arrived we were starving and my mother gave something to a shopkeeper for a piece of cabbage. We were so hungry we could have swallowed wood."
30. The figure 1,024:
"We know that anti-Semitism has not been eradicated in Europe," Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti said at a ceremony Tuesday night marking the 69th anniversary of the World War II round-up and deportation of 1,024 Roman Jews to Auschwitz...
31. Esther Bauer:
Born in Hamburg, Germany in 1924, she found herself, along with her parents, both doctors, deported to a ghetto in Czechoslovakia where they became prisoners. Her father died six weeks later. After two years there, she married, and eventually found herself, her mother and new husband in Auschwitz, where her husband was murdered and her mother eventually died.
32. Sara Besser (née Weinraub):
Sara Weinraub was born on May 18, 1918, in Wolanow, Poland, to Isaac and Dwojra Weinraub. She grew into an energetic, outgoing woman who worked as a dressmaker, loved to sing and was close to her tall, red-bearded grandfather.
After the invasion of Poland in 1939, Sara and her twin brother, Yossel, were interned in the Wolanow ghetto until August 1943, when they were transferred to various labour and concentration camps. They somehow remained together.
Then, early in 1944, Yossel contracted typhus and Sara tried desperately to save him by hiding him in the snow. Then, she also developed the disease but still risked her life every day by smuggling food to him.
Yossel was discovered and shot but Sara survived the camps, including Auschwitz and Mauthausen-Gusen, until liberation in May 1945, only to find that all her immediate family had been killed.
33. Simon Dubnow:
The story is told that Simon Dubnow, the well-respected Jewish historian, shot in the Riga ghetto on 8th December 1941, warned his fellow Jews: "Yidn, shreibt un farshreibt!" ("Jews, write and record!")
