Survivor of medical experiments performed on twins in Auschwitz holds powerful, touching AMA.   Eva Mozes Kor's story is not only one of survival, but also one of compassion and love. She was just a child when she and her family were sent off to a concentration camp, but because she happened to be a twin, the horrors she experienced were different from those most others endured.

One of five metal stamps for tattooing prisoner numbers – a new item in our Collections. This is one of the most important finds in recent years. Initially, the tattoos were applied to a left breast of a prisoner. A stamp fitted with sharp needles perforated the skin, and ink was rubbed into the wounds.

After falling in love & escaping Auschwitz together, this couple was separated in the midst of World War II. "While talking with her Polish cleaning woman in 1982, Ms Cybulska related her Auschwitz escape story. The stunned woman said she had heard Mr Bielecki tell the same story on Polish TV. She then helped Ms Cybulska find Mr Bielecki in Poland. In the summer of 1983, they met at the Krakow airport. He brought 39 red roses, one for each year they had spent apart."

Editing pictures taken in Auschwitz can be risky. What do you think about this collage? The train car from the unloading ramp at Birkenau and a sculpture from the main exhibition which expresses hunger... (The Last Stop by Gonkly)

Holocaust survivor Henia Bryer:  Now in her 80s, she fears younger generations lack knowledge of the Holocaust.     "I had an operation once and the anaesthetist comes and looks at [the tattoo on] my arm and he says, 'What is this?' And I said, 'That's from Auschwitz.' And he said, 'Auschwitz, what was that?'  And that was a young man, a qualified doctor," she says.
