Robert E. Reis quotes, Monday, May 14, 2007, a recent webpage from a Buchenwald survivor who gives a different view

Buchenwald: another view

ATTACHED is a copy of a webpage by a holocaust survivor. The excerpts below do shed some interesting light on the treatment of Polish Jewish children in protective custody:

. . . I survived (six years of imprisonment in ghettos, labor camps and concentration camps as a child during World War II). . . When, as a nine-year-old, I spent a month in Buchenwald, it never occurred to me that those of my fellow-inmates who were Gypsies, Soviet prisoners of war, or Danish policemen arrested for helping the Jews escape, were undergoing experiences that were different from mine…. Both of my parents survived, and I had no siblings. I have no tattoo (though I sometimes perversely envied those who had them). I was never beaten or starved. After the War I went on with school at the normal grade level. And when I recently visited the Buchenwald memorial site, the foremost thought in my mind -- unrepentant cinephile that I am -- was to find the location of the barrack where I saw my first movie; never mind that my first screen image was of a smiling Hitler on horseback, introducing a newsreel. The search for the site of the barrack where I actually lived took second place. . . . I spent the last months of the War, after Buchenwald, in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp . . .

I suspect that should you use this information that the good doctor will remove the original webpage.
