"Like big, black clouds, the smoke of the crematorium hung over the camp. Sharp, red tongues of flame behind the sky, and the air was full of the nauseating smell of burning flesh."
"The Angel of Auschwitz," Dr. Gisella Perl.
Dr. Perl, from Sighet, Romania, was a Jewish gynaecologist transported to Auschiwtz Birkenau in 1944 where she ended up working in the hospital. She soon crossed paths with the infamous Dr. Mengele who instructed her to send her all the pregnant women she discovered. She quickly discovered they went through horrible medical experiments and ended in the gas chambers.
“I decided that never again would there be a pregnant woman in Auschwitz.”
In order to save these women Dr. Perl started to perform abortions “using only my dirty hands" in order to save them from Dr. Mengele.
