60 years ago, on May 4th 1945, I was a prisoner in the Mauthausen-Ebensee concentration camp. This was almost my last stop after five and a half years, during which I was in the Lodz ghetto, Auschwitz, Gross Rosen and the death march to Mauthausen. I weighed just 32 kilos, and was close to death, in body and in spirit. Most camp inmates were in a similar state.
