Address on Behalf of the Survivors, by Esther Miron

State Opening Ceremony of Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day ‏2017

When I arrived at Lager C, Auschwitz in July 1944, there were some 30,000 Jewish women there.  By the end of October 1944, approximately 500 women remained, having survived Mengele's selections.  They were the ones considered fit to work.

My cousin and I remained there in one of those Blocks.  Earlier, we were three – with my little sister Elvira.  But Dr. Mengele separated us in the big selection on the eve of Rosh Hashanah, and took her away from me, and from this world.
