The date is the 24th of February 1940. We’re waiting for the train that will take us to Auschwitz, it’s a terrible feeling. They made us line up and stand in the cold. “What’s that noise? ” I hear someone say. It was a train, a gigantic train.
I was happy that there was a train because it was freezing. But suddenly I saw another train on the rail at our side. It’s an old train and doesn’t look like it’s going to get us anywhere fast. It was only then when I realised that it was packed with people. I got on and it started moving. But it is so slow, I would rather walk to Auschwitz .
