    Born In Auschwitz: How One Woman Delivered 3,000 Babies During The Holocaust:

    “This article is the true story of Stanislawa Leszczynska, a midwife in Auschwitz concentration camp. She was responsible for the delivery of over 3,000 children.”

    “There were many other Auschwitz medical professionals besides Stanislawa, and they cared for the sick and injured under Nazi guidance.”

    “As Stanislawa continued to successfully bring thousands of babies into the world despite the camp’s treacherous conditions, the Nazis began to take any children born with Aryan features, sending them to orphanages to be adopted by German families.”

    [Gee, I was always led to believe that ALL infants and children were immediately "gassed" at Auschwitz. If the intent of the Germans was to “gas” everybody, why didn’t they “gas” all the pregnant women and thus efficiently “kill two birds with one stone”? So now, the truth finally comes out, as it always will, given enough time.]

    “Many who were in Auschwitz contracted Typhus…” [Dr. John E. Gordon, M.D., Ph.D., a professor of preventive medicine and epidemiology at the Harvard University School of Public Health, who was with US forces in Germany in 1945, reported in 1948 that "The outbreaks in concentration camps and prisons made up the great bulk of typhus infection encountered in Germany."]

    “Even though Menegle was clearly opposed to Stanislawa’s saving of Jewish infants and their mothers, he did remark to the other Nazi physicians that not only was she an exceptionally skilled midwife, but that she was the personification of hope prisoners clung to that they may, eventually, escape the camp.” [The obligatory condemnation of Mengele is standard in any discussion of Auschwitz. Looks like Auschwitz was a "Birth Camp", not a "Death Camp"]

    This dear lady absolutely turned my life around, and I have viewed various clips, this one especially; tens and tens of occasions to give me inspiration, to allow me to laugh, cry sometimes with soft, gentle warm tears – like now — yet still smiling through them, what an incredibly, wonderful, sincere and articulate woman. May she rest in eternal Glory and shine down on us when we need it to give us a degree of some strength that she had the capacity to shine through the darkness to blinding light.

    I've watched the full film more than half a dozen times. Alice Herz-Sommer is my go-to for inspiration, courage, and hope. Alice and the other participants in "The Lady in No. 6" and those in "Defiant Requiem" are my heroes.

    This story breaks my heart but gives me a different perspective on the whole topic. Look at how happy she is after going through all of that. Also, I had no idea people were saved because of their musical talents.
