Dancing through the Darkness
Autumn 2020 Vol. 8 # 2 ISSN 2333-0627
Cover art by Carly JJ Turner
“In between the fire was burning and you could smell, you know from the bones and hair – and the fire was burning that was like over the whole camp. Was very big, very big.
And we had to dance. The Germans were standing there laughing and having fun – some of the Jews had instruments, they were playing the music, like a sub-distance from the Germans and it was an order that we had to dance. And Chaim my husband asked me to dance and that was the first time I met Chaim.” Saartje (Selma) Engel nee Wijnberg. Interview with USHMM.
