Magda Auerbach, born in 1928 in Užhorod, Czechoslovakia, describes growing up comfortably in an Orthodox Jewish family; being forced to wear the yellow star; her family being kicked out of their home after Passover; moving to a camp; being transported by freight train to Birkenau-Auschwitz; her experiences in Birkenau-Auschwitz before being moved again to a labor camp with her sisters where they cleared the rubble of bombed factories; transferring to a number of other camps; taking part in a death march and sleeping in stables; and realizing the war was over on May 9, 1945 when she and the other people on the death march saw the guards had abandoned the stable.
