Holocaust memorial day: ‘The Nazis experimented on me at Auschwitz’ – BBC News

A woman in her nineties who has been diagnosed with dementia has shared her story of how she escaped the Nazis with her son for the first time.

After Germany invaded Poland in 1939, Alina Peretti was sent to a labour camp in Siberia, put in front of a firing squad in Warsaw and finally sent to the concentration camp, Auschwitz.

“It’s unbelievable when you found out that we survived,” she said, ahead of Holocaust Memorial Day on Thursday.
