In an article in the Mail Online newspaper, 90-year-old Iby Knill tells the story of a twin girl, whom she met on her first night in the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp in July 1944. Iby Knill was among the Hungarian Jews who were sent to Birkenau, beginning in May 1944.
This quote is from the article in the Mail Online:
A grandmother who survived the Holocaust has finally spoken about the horrors of Auschwitz 70 years after promising a girl she would tell the world what she had witnessed.
Iby Knill, 90, recalls how on the first night she spent at the death camp in July 1944 a frail teenager crawled over to her and begged ‘if you live, please tell our story.’
Four years ago Mrs knill took a course in theology and it was during one of the group sessions that she finally revealed she was sent to the concentration camp when she was 20.
In a moving testament she describes the realisation that she faced being gassed like six million others.
