“And from the day we entered that place, I’ve never forgotten anything, all the things I didn’t remember before, I remembered there. I don’t remember the train journey as I say but when we arrived and everybody was chased out and they were shouted at. There were people shouting, there were people with dogs standing, and everybody was taken into a huge hut, I think it was a barrack. And everybody had to undress. And it was bitterly, bitterly cold. Now I did forget to mention that at Westerbork, we had our own clothes. We didn’t wear a uniform. When we got to Ravensbruck, they dished out the cotton gray and navy blue stripped clothing and wooden clogs. I don’t think anyone was given underwear. We weren’t given a jersey, we weren’t given a coat. And February in Germany, it can get to 28 below. It’s really cold. But there were not that many children that were sent to. We were in a Hungarian group. There were 18 Hungarians who all went through to Ravensbruck who were all kept together. There were a few children but not that many. Ravensbruck was not meant as a camp for children. So there were no uniforms for us which was very lucky. I still had the winter coat that I had come with two years before, because frankly I didn’t grow and everything I had from the age of five fitted me. Until we were released, I had the same dress and the same winter coat and the same shoes which was really lucky because they were warm. And my brother, also had his jersey and stuff like that. But my mother was given a uniform. And people, as I remember everyone being undressed was a terrible shock to see hundreds and hundreds of women completely naked and standing like this. I mean they were all warmly dressed with their coats. All their personal possessions, they said you could take your personal possessions but I don’t know why, were dumped on the platform and everything, you had to leave everything behind. My mother had a plain wedding ring, and when she had to give her wedding wing, she was very upset. Of course, she’s never had a wedding ring again. The SS guards, they took everything. All the jewelry went into a big bowl. And they looked to see what people had. All your clothing was left behind. And you were issued with this clothing, it was one size fits all. If it was big, you were fine, but if it was small, it was also fine. You were given these clogs, wooden clogs, I don’t remember if people wore stockings. As I said, everyone went to a shower which was a cold water shower. And then we were taken into the barracks and that, if I have a nightmare, it’s always of that. It was really the most horrendous thing I’ve ever seen because it was a huge, huge barrack. It was three tiered wooden beds, which were horrible, close together and there were all these skeletons looking out at you and they told me I began to scream. I’ve never seen anything so horrible in my entire life. I still can’t look at a thin woman. If someone is anorexic, I want to vomit. I can’t stand to look at it, I just can’t look.”
