JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Bribing to get out of Death Camps #general

I recently spoke with a friend that shared what I believe to be a very
unique story: His Jewish mother was an Argentine citizen at the time
of WWII. Her father (my friend's grandfather) lived in Vienna, Austria
and was deported to Dachau Concentration camp at the onset of the time
that the Nazis were removing all Jews >from this country.

Through a series of connections and bribery, she managed to have her
father taken >from this death camp and deported to Argentina.

Can anyone authenticate if occurrences like this one ever occurred
with any relative frequency? I never heard of this happening before.

Thank you for your kind assistance!!

Warmly,
