    Has anyone, I wonder, ever tallied the exact number of inmates that had once been in Auschwitz but survived? How many were ever released?

    Impossible to calculate accurately as the majority of the documentation was destroyed by the SS prior to the evacuation of the camp complex, yet very limited numbers of individuals were certainly released from concentration camps - more so through the earlier phase of the concentration camps.

    The oldest survivors I have met often appeared far younger than their advanced years...testament to their incredible resolve...
