A cousin by marriage and family friend, Edja Rosenzweig, jumped from a train going from the Hasag in Czestochowa to Auschwitz in mid-January 1945. She was about 21 at the time. My father interviewed her shortly before she passed away in 2002, and she told her entire wartime story. She said she and about 10 others in her group jumped from the train (they knocked out a window), and several made it to the woods where they hid out for several days. Edja was shot in the leg as she escaped. It might be possible to determine the names of some of the others depending on what kinds of records exist from the Hasag. For the person collecting stories, pls let me know if you would like more details about Edja's story.
