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?

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".
