Holocaust survivors describe Belsen
By Alex Ali
SURVIVORS of the “darkest chapter” of German history spoke at Yom Hashoah at Pinner Synagogue on Sunday evening.

A packed congregation was enthralled and deeply affected as synagogue-goers listened to the experiences of Susan Pollack and Anita Laska Wallfisch as they told of how they survived concentration camps during the Nazi regime.

Susan was only 14 years-old when she was liberated from Bergen Belsen on April 15, 1945, by the British Army. She had previously spent time at Auschwitz where her mother had been gassed.

advertisementAnita was 19 years-old when she was liberated and during her time in concentration camps she played in camp orchestras.
