Summary: The testimony of Leib and Gittle Moscowitz tells, in their own words, the harrowing story of two teenagers swept up in the maelstrom of the German death machine and who, against all odds, managed to survive. They are not historians talking about something that happened to other people. They are not literary craftsmen trying to evoke emotions in audiences that can only imagine what it might have been like in Auschwitz, Mauthausen and Ravensbruck. Leib and Gittle were there. They know what happened. They experienced it. What they are sharing are not reminiscences, but eternal truths.
