Braha Rauffmann is the daughter of Sara Ritterbrand (née Beer) who also survived Belzec.After the closing of Belzec Sara was transferred to Trawniki, then to Auschwitz, only to finally be liberated from Bergen-Belsen.Mother and daughter were reunited after the war and resided in Israel.

Just a couple of questions:

How does a seven year old Jewish girl survive Belzec for a "week or two"?

She says that she emerged from her hiding place in July, after 20 months.I presume that was July of 1943.

What is the probability that she could have survived two Polish winters in an outdoor firewood bin at a house where two SS men resided?

With so many ridiculous lies like this out there, you'd imagine that the Germans were the most incompetent mass murderers in history. Every nook and cranny was hiding someone. Holes in fences. Wolves in the woods. People fighting bears. Its like some kind of hillbilly circus festival. You could probably write an incredible fictional story if you just cobbled all of this crap into one overall narrative. Like the Twilight series, we could call it something like the Holo-circus series.

It is not clear from the interview that she, indeed, was within the infamous camp, even for a short time. Belzec is (and was during WW II) a middle-sized town, where even long-range trains stop. As far as I understand, she and her mother were living in the town. As she obviously survived the war, she must either have had "Aryan papers," or was taken in by a Gentile family. The hiding story, indeed, sounds strange.

Regarding her escape, she indeed says @ 3:40, "In less than two minutes we were out of the camp."

She also clearly says @ 3:09 that this was after "a week or two".
