Quote from Anna Korneeva in the picture: “In the Autumn of 1943 they brought us, five friends, to the Auschwitz camp. I became number 63514… We were taken far from the camp to dig fish ponds. It was so cold there, it was so painful to lift spadefuls of muddy clay all day long, the back was aching and feet grew stiff from the cold mud. And we were terribly hungry. We had no other clothes besides striped dresses, thin jackets and wooden clogs. My friends Katya, Vera, Raya and Zhenya soon died from diseases, hunger and inhuman tortures.” photofree exgif stockphoto
