This is the full quote from the news story:

Begin quote

GREENWICH — She saw the worst of humanity: mankind moved to enslave, execute and exterminate because of prejudice.

She rode for days locked in a cattle car packed with men, women and children, some dead, some insane.

She was sent to years of hard labor, one nonentity out of many in a long line of women facing a man [Josef Mengele] she described as an “Angel of Death” who chose her [to be gassed] and made her family walk the other way.

Once a week she washed herself in showers that on alternate days gassed people. She subsisted on a sip of soup a day. She dragged the exhausted long miles of the Death March from Auschwitz to Bergen-Belsen while laggers were shot.

She survived.

End quote from news article
