Nothing on this earth can prepare anyone for a place like Auschwitz-Birkenau. One’s worse nightmare is mild by comparison to what I had to endure in Mengele’ labs. I was just a 9-year-old child who grew up fast, because children who have to face life and death situations are no longer children. I often say that we, the Mengele Twins, are the children without a childhood because when we look back at our wonder years, we remember the huge chimneys, the smell of burned flesh, the shots, the blood taking, the endless tests in Mengele’s labs, the rats, lice, and dead bodies that were everywhere.
