Transcript: I was 9 weeks in Majdanek, 9 weeks, you see, 9 weeks! And I never washed my face the whole 9 weeks because then in the barracks there was no water. We had to go out, you know, in a shed, washing the face, or needing to go to the toilet. Everything over there was the Ukrainer [Yiddish for "Ukrainian"], the Ukrainer they got a half inch. . . just a half inch, a quarter of an inch iron pipes and knock us in the head and every day fall dead . . . I never was not one time out washing my face . . . 9 weeks. When I wash my face, I was out of Majdanek and coming to Auschwitz. I just take off the clothes in 9 weeks what I wear in Majdanek and throw away and take the first shower. And they cut off my hair and everything. And I got a clean shirt and I say, I said to myself there, "God is still with me." _________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________
