Surviving the Holocaust: ‘Thou Shalt Not Kill’

Surviving the Holocaust

*+-Berry Craig: Death also was ever-present at the slave labor camps. Out of Oberaltstadt’s 3,000 prisoners, only 800 survived the war, Katz said. The Nazis took 60 Jewish females from Sosnowiec, Katz said. She was the only survivor.
