Sonia S.

(English translation) Our state of mind was to try to survive, and even though one felt bad there was no other choice. We had to move forward. The fear always existed because you never knew what tomorrow would hold. My mother in order to send a package to my father had to find food in the kitchen where she worked. She would make a package, she would have to make a package for that man, meet him by the fence between the men's and women's barracks -- once they caught her and beat her -- and give the man a package for him and one to give to my father. So we had to make two packages and that man on meeting him would be pass along to him a little more food.
