As world marks Jan. 27 commemoration, Holocaust survivor Angela Orosz supports effort to preserve Auschwitz children’s shoes

Angela Orosz was born in Auschwitz on December 21, 1944, weighing only one kilogram, just over a month before the camp was liberated by Soviet troops on Jan. 27, 1945.  “I was too weak to cry, and this saved my life. Nobody thought that I would survive, but here am I, alive”.

Angela is a Holocaust survivor and educator from Montreal who has joined several delegations on the March of the Living on their visits to Poland.

Angela is advocating on behalf of the From Soul to Sole campaign to restore some 8,000 children’s shoes housed at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum and in desperate need of conservation.

Join us to preserve the memory of the 1.5 million children murdered during the Holocaust and help protect the historical evidence of the heinous crimes of Nazi Germany.
