Just a few weeks after Passover in 1944, Regina Resnick was taken with her parents, two sisters and two brothers from her home in Hungary to a Jewish ghetto. Four weeks later, they arrived in Auschwitz. She never saw her mother, father, or youngest brother again.
Ms. Resnick is a survivor of the Auschwitz death march and the horrific train transport to Ravensbrück in January 1945. Her chilling memories of Ravensbrück gave us great insight into the camp conditions at that time; her description of the march, the train ride, and the solidarity of the women during the trip helped us understand more about the Jewish women from Auschwitz who were evacuated to Ravensbrück. It was these sick, starving, and exhausted women who jumped into action when they saw the young Polish Rabbits being chased by the SS. They risked their lives to help hide the Catholic Rabbits - by disguising them as Auschwitz Jews.
