Jump to last reply

Quoting from a little book by Sybille Steinbacher purchased 2005 at Auschwitz (on my birthday): "On the afternoon of 27 January 1945 soldiers of the 60th Army of the First Ukranian Front liberated Auschwitz. They found at least 600 corpses. In the parent camp, in Birkenau and in Monowitz some 7,000 prisoners were still alive, about 5,800 of them in Birkenau, about 800 in the prisoner's infirmary building in Monowitz, and 500 in the small sub camps. Many were already so weak that they were barely aware of the event they had so long yearned for.

In the warehouses the liberators found about 370,000 men's suits and 837,000 women's coats and dresses, huge amounts of children's clothing, about 44,000 pairs of shoes...7.7 tons of human hair packed ready for transport..."
