Chaya convinces Mengele to spare her sister
This amazing story was told to me by a respected Brooklyn Chiropractor in the orthodox community. His mother and her sister were deported to Auschwitz. When they got down from the train car they were face-to-face with the infamous Dr. Mengele. Pointing with his riding crop-- Mengele directed Chaya, the younger sister, to go to the left
(Links), to life; while her older sister,Suri, was directed to the right
(Rechts)-death. Chaya, looked Mengele straight in the face, pointed to her older, heavier sister and said: "I don't need to eat so much, she can go with me." With his riding crop Mengele directed both of them to the left! Miraculously both sisters survived the horror that was Auschwitz.
Their consecutive Auschwitz numbers are A-6341 and A-6342
Today, the sisters have between them...
4 children, 18 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren.
