Eva Mozes Kor (Herself)
Surviving ten year old child and her account of the Russian liberation of Auschwitz: We ran up to them and they gave us hugs, cookies and chocolate. Being so alone, a hug meant more than anybody could imagine because that replaced the human warmth that we were starving for. We were not only starved for food, but we were starved for human kindness. And the Soviet Army did provide some of that.
