We were taken to a separate place and visited by Dr. Mengele
, who the inmates called "Dr. Death." For about nine months, Mengele and many other doctors examined my sister and I, sometimes alone and sometimes together. They injected us with fluids and took blood samples from us. I was only about fourteen at the time.
Day after day, they measured different parts of our bodies. They checked our hands, our bone structure and our eyes for colour comparisons. They also took samples of our hair. It was very scary because the rooms we were taken to did not look like laboratories. They were grey and dingy.
