My father was taken to forced labor camp in 1942 and never returned. We were taken from our home to the ghetto in Uzhgorod on the Sabbath of Passover in 1944. We were there for one month till taken to Auschwitz.
My mother and brother arrived at Auschwitz on Erev Shavuos (the night before the Feast of Tabernacles) in 1944. Our mother was gassed after Selection. Avraham and I lived. After the Selection, I was told by a German, don’t worry, you’ll see your mother again at night. I estimate that I lost over 80 family members in the Holocaust.
