|This translation is in memory of my grandmothers, Gizella Fischer and
Pessel Spiro, whom I never knew. They were two simple, pious women who went
the suffering and terror of the Kisvarda ghetto to perish in Auschwitz. May
their memory be for a blessing.
My mother and grandmother Gizella arrived together at the gates of Auschwitz, where they were sent different ways by the infamous doctor known as the "angel of death." My mother had lost her kerchief on the way, and my grandmother took off hers and gave it to her, saying "you have a cold, you need it more than I do." That was the last time they saw each other.
