    1. Gisella Perl: Those of us who did not survive, they were the best of us.

    1. Gisella Perl: Auschwitz was it;s own country, with its own rules and its own logic, and these rules changed from day to day, from situation to situation. We, who were there, who lived it, could not judge one another. So it is impossible, no, no, it is absurd for you men, sitting here, to judge me.

    1. Dr. Mengele: You, your husband and your whole entire family will be reunited sooner than you know.

    1. Frederick Krauss: I would rather die by my own hand, than give those bastards the pleasure.
