“The trip to Auschwitz – very few speak about it because very few came back – is one of the most terrible chapters of the Shoah. Mine lasted six days, and for six days this humanity lived hoarded in the freight car with its misery, with its bodily functions, with its smell of sweat, of urine, of fear. I always tell my students because I want them to know, and when I pass through any station and see calves or pigs being brought to the slaughterhouse, I always think that I was one of those calves, one of those pigs…”-Liliana Segre
