Rosalie Simon's tale - Another jew took her place in gas chamber, at 12 yrs old just "ran away" from Auschwitz with help of jewish camp worker

Dr. Mengele personally sentenced Rosalie, then 12 years old, to die.

Rosalie still has a vision of Mengele, and saw her mother sent to the gas chamber.

When Rosalie was set to go to the gas chamber, another jewish woman volunteered to take Rosalie's place.

But that wasn't good enough for Rosalie. She just decided to run. And it worked. She escaped!

Her mother and brother were holocausted at Auschwitz. But her four older sisters and father survived the Holocaust.

It vas a miracle!
