Survivor / Bild Newspaper
Ritta Weiss being interviewd by journalist Vanessa Schlesier for the German Bild newspaper. She tells of her arrival at Auschwitz, as the Jews were shepherded off the train and into the long lines that preceded the selection by SS officers. Only because Mengele decided at the last moment to pull her back to the right side of the selection line did Rita live.
