The enduring question: why me? Continues to hound those who escaped the Nazi death machine.
For more than 70 years, Marsha Kreuzman has believed that she would be better off dead.
Death first promised salvation during her years of physical and psychological torture at the Mauthausen concentration camp as the Second World War devastated Europe.
When the Nazi encampment was liberated in May 1945, an American soldier tried to help her to her feet.
Kreuzman recalls: “He said, ‘You have to walk.’ I said, ‘I don’t want to walk, I want to die.’”
