Survivor witness of horrors at Auschwitz
15 July 2015 | by lcmullerSee all my reviews

Ms. Kitty Hart-Moxon gives two teenage girls a walking tour through what now remains of Auschwitz-Birkenau Death Camp. Ms. Hart-Moxon, a teenager at the time of her imprisonment, shares her personal and horrifying experiences of survival at the death camp- who was the same age as the teenage girls (16/17) .

Ms. Hart-Moxon's narration is supplemented with historic background information, pictures and films of Auschwitz, which may be disturbing to young or sensitive audiences. As you listen to Ms. Hart-Moxon's survivor story; of terror, torture and worst, you learn about the historic operation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp and her actions and attitudes to survive. It is a phenomenal story of survival that Ms. Hart-Moxon personally witnessed and shares with the next generation and the world. "It happened once, it could happen again"
