Quotes Emory Anderson: So, you were taken to Auschwitz in 1943. Auschwitz-Birkenau it became. And you survived there for six months. Now, most people didn't last more than a month or two. Look, there's always more than one side to a story. I want everyone to know yours. Whatever it is... you can't shock me.
