Auschwitz surviver "Beware of hate".

The memory of my mother, going with her three children, with my little baby sister and my two younger brothers, going to the gas chamber, is the worst memory that I carry with me for the rest of my life.

My name is Max Eisen, and I'm a survivor of Auschwitz.

I saw her walk, I remember, all I could see was her back.

Carrying a baby in her arm, and my two little brothers.

There were no goodbyes said.

Six million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust. Over 1.1 million of those were killed here, in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

I was fifteen years old when I arrived here, May of 1944.

A9892. Hungarian Transports.

Max has returned every year for the past two decades to tell his story.

Here we are,

I want you to sort try to smell what this place smelled like.

Can you hear the voices?

Scratches with their hands. They were trying to go through cement walls just to get away from the gas that was killing them.

Imagine 2,000 people fighting each other for a breath of air.

You could to say that this is the last will and testament of people who died here.

From darkness to light, what a wonderful thing it is to know that you're alive.

Every year Max joins the March of the Living, in memory of those forced on 'death marches' from the camps.

Some 12,000 people recently marched with Max from Auschwitz to Birkenau on Holocaust Remembrance Day.

I'm thinking of my family, who have to no markers, no graves, whose ashes have been blown to the four corners of the earth.

I don't know how I survived.

I'm amazed how I survived.


I'd like to tell a lot to the world.

Respect each other, no matter what religion or colour you are.

Hatred against Jewish people is alive and well all over the world.

I come back here to tell others not to go down this terrible road of hatred and intolerance.


It' a warning. Beware.

This place reminds you to beware of hatred.

I was at home the other night inth middle of my dinner when the phone rang.


AT&T:Yes, thie is AT&T...

ME:Thie is AT&T,

AT&T:Yes, this is AT&T.

ME:Is this AT&T.?

AT&T:Yes! This is AT&T, may I speak to Mr.Byron, please?

ME:May I ask who is calling?

AT&T:This is AT&T.

ME:OK, hold on.

At this point I put the phone down for a solid 5 minutes thinking that, surely, this person would have hung up the phone. I ate my salad. Much to my surprise, when I picked up the receiver, they were still waiting,


AT&T:Is this Mr.Byron?

ME:May I ask who is calling, please?

AT&T:Yes, this is AT&T...

ME:This is AT&T?

AT&T:Yes, this is AT&T...

ME:The phone company.

AT&T:Yes, sir.

ME:I thought you said this was AT&T.

AT&T:Yes, sir, we are phone company.

ME:I already have a phone.

AT&T:We aren't selling phones today, Mr.Byron. We world like to offer you 10 cents a minute, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

ME:Now, that's 10 cents a minute, 24 hours a day?

AT&T:(getting a little excited at this point by my interest) Yes, sir, that's right! 24 hours a day!

ME:7 days a week?

AT&T:That's right.

ME:I am definitely interested in that! Wow!! That's amazing!

AT&T:We think so!

ME:That's quite a sum of money!

AT&TYes, sir, it's amazing how it adds up.

ME:OK, so will you send me checks weekly, monthly or just one big one at the end of the year for the full $52,560; and if you send an annual check, can I get a cash advance?

AT&T:Excuse me?

ME:You know, the 10 cents a minute.

AT&T:What are you talking about?

ME:You said you'd give me 10 cents a minute, 24 horus a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Thats comes to $144 per day, $1008 per week and $52,560 per year, I'm just interested in knowing how you will be making payment.

AT&T:Oh, no sir. I didn't mean we'd be peying you, You pay us 10 cents a minute.

ME:Wait a minutes. how do you figure that by saying that you'll give me 10 cents a minute, that I'll give YOU 10 cents a minute? Is this some kind of subliminal telemarketing scheme? I've read about things like this in the Enquirer, you know.

AT&T:No, sur, we are offering 10 cents a minute for

ME:THERE YOU GO AGAIN! Can I speak to supervisor please?

AT&T:Sir, I don't think that necessary.

ME:I insist on speaking to supervisor!

AT&T:Yes, Mr.Byron. Pleas hold.

At this point, I begin trying to finish my dinner.



SUPERVISOR:I understand you are not quite understanding our 10 cents a minute program.

ME:is This AT&T?

SUPERVISOR:Yes, sir, it sure is.

ME:(I had to swallow before I choked on my food, It was all I could do to suppress my laughter and I had to be Careful not to produce a snort.) No, actually, I was just waiting for someone to get back to me so that I could sign up fo the plan.

SUPERVISOR:Ok, no problem, I'll transfer you back to the person who was helping you.

ME:Thank you.

I was on hold once again and managed a few more monthfuls. I need to end this conversation. Suddenly, there was an aggravated but polite voice at the other end of the phone.

AT&T:Hello, Mr.Byron, I understand that you are interested in sighning up for our plan?

ME:No, but I was wondering - do you have that "Friend and Family" thing because I'm an only child and I'd really like to have a little brother...
