#Kindle #Amazon “In the evening, Polish female prisoners who live in the staff building put candles on a pine branch, which they have secretly brought into the room allocated to them. They light the candles and sing Christmas carols and wish each other freedom…. Such quiet celebrations take place in several blocks and barracks of Auschwitz and auxiliary camps. They sustain the inmates and feed their hope of surviving the camps (Source: Czech 290).
