Note: My father, Meynhert Klein, during the few times that he spoke to me about his life during the Holocaust, would describe the last time he saw his mom and sister Bella leaving on a train. I don't know when or where this occurred. And looking back now, I failed to ask the many questions that fill my head now. I'd like to believe that my inaction was because my father would be teary during these moments, and I didn't want to cause him any more pain. I hope it wasn't because I was too young and self-absorbed. But I can't say.

Death of a son
Cause: Murdered by the Nazis
Note: In the morning the train stopped and we arrived in a godforsaken place called Auschwitz. The air was full of smoke with a very strange smell. We were all in a daze. The SS was urging us to get off quickly. The packages had to be put in one pile. I was holding my dear Thomas by the hand and was looking for his sweater when an SS man came and pushed me. I looked up and saw my in-laws standing already in a line with middle-age people. My mother-in-law was holding my sister-in-law's, Georgette's little two and a half year old Robbie. And there was another very long line with young women. I was standing flabbergasted and did not know where to turn, when another SS man pushed away my dear son and said to me, in German " Where are you running round like a crazy coat." I thought I was standing in one place and the world is turning around me. I do remember running towards my in-laws after my dear little Thomas was pushed away from me and told him, "Hold on tight to Grandfather's hand." And he did. I thought, as we were told, that the older people would take care of the children and we would work and at night we will see them again. I looked after them and they disappeared in the dust and I never saw them again.

Note: It's twenty years since Aunt Eva passed away. I remember at a Wedding Party that Aunt Eva asked me to dance with her. I looked over at my dad, hoping he would bail me out. Instead, he said, "Go dance with your Aunt." Eva led me to the dance floor where the band was playing a waltz. I was about fifteen and the only thing I knew about slow dancing was from watching the "old people." As we began, I put my right hand on her upper back. With disapproval, my Aunt moved my hand to her lower back. "No. When you dance with a woman, that's where you put your hand." We proceeded and after stepping on Eva's feet for the third time, she politely said, "You're such a good dancer." But I knew better.
