My name is Miki Goldman. I'm a survivor of #Auschwitz which was liberated 75 years ago today. Today I'll be taking over the State of 🇮🇱 account to share my story & help make sure that the 🌍 never forgets the #Holocaust. RT this and reply with your questions. #HowMikiSurvived
I was born in Katowize, Poland in 1925. When WWII began I escaped with my parents and siblings to Przemysl. From there I was deported to the Szebnie camp & in November 1943, I was transferred to Auschwitz until the liquidation of the camp in Jan. 1945. #HowMikiSurvived #HMD2020 Me and my classmates before the Holocaust. Unfortunately, I never saw many of them again.
@AuschwitzMuseum @USCShoahFdn @Fondation_Shoah @HolocaustUK @HolocaustMuseum @HMD_UK @HolocaustCentUK @wienerlibrary On January 17, as the Red Army was approaching, the Nazis evacuated the camp & led us on a death march. Many people died from hunger & hypothermia along the way. I escaped by pretending to be dead in the snow & was hidden by polish peasants. #HowMikiSurvived #HMD2020 #Auschwitz75
