At this point, I am joined this am by a new friend named Jonny Daniels. He was born in England but now lives in Israel. He has joined me to do something no one else still alive in his family has done – go to Auschwitz. Every member of his family was killed there except his grandmother.
She remembers Mengele looking into the crowds and selecting who would live and die. She remembers the day she and all of Johnny’s family got off the train from Hungary.
He gets quieter and quieter the closer we get to the camp. I notice he keeps looking at a piece of paper when he thinks no one is looking. He later shows it to me.
It is the list of family he never met that were killed at the camp… the camp I will show you tomorrow…
And you’ll be able to see all of this as our GBTV documentary crew is capturing every step of this journey. One that I believe will change you forever – as it did me.
