Yanina Cywinska's holo-fable - Survives Auschwitz gas chamber when dead jews fall on top of her, protecting her from poisonous gas
Yanina was only 10 years old when the nazis took her to the Auschwitz gas chambers. Because the nazis killed all children under 16 at the Death Camp.
The nazis threw Yanina into the gas chamber and fired up the gas. All the adult Jews croaked. They fell on top of Yanina, and protected her with their bodies from the poison gas! It was a miracle!
Then the SonderKommandos dressed 10 year old Yanina in a uniform and told her to blend in with the other adult prisoners. The stupid nazis never caught on, and so they sent 10 year old Yanina to work at Dachau.
