Shoah business



A poster advertising a show at the Hotel Adolphus in Dallas, Texas, currently for
sale on ebay; the seller dates it to the 1930s, but it's probably from the 1950s.


Soocha Renay was a nightclub singer and comedian who had numerous stories of how she escaped being killed by the Germans during WWII. It turns out that fainting in the queue for the gas chamber would result in the Nazis putting you in hospital, opposed to them just forcing some of the other victims to carry you into the gas chamber.



Long Island Star Journal (NY), June 7, 1956, p.15

    1. She probably had another name and the other name with various spellings will appear numerous times on the list at Yad Vashem

    2. Have noticed already that auntie is mentioned twice in the Shoah Database at Yad Vashem, with different year of birth.
