Nederlands Exposition in Auschwitz Dutch people in Auschwitz

Leny Boeken-Velleman, 1922

In the train of 3 September one of the boys from the prison barracks made a hole and I was sitting in that wagon. Eight people were allowed to jump and they asked me if I also wanted to jump when the train would slow down. It was my third chance to escape, but I didn't have the courage.
