III. Concentration Camps
Yet even in the midst of the inexcusable evil towards mankind, there was a touch of humanity shown to me by one German women guard. Sometimes when I worked the night shift in the factory she would put me in a corner so that I could rest. Whenever she could, she called me and the other two girls into her barracks to clean and there she would feed us. Her parents used to bring extra food for us. She was our salvation, so I cannot blame all Germans. Some helped in whatever way they could.
