‘The chimneys spewed fire… the smell of burning human flesh was unbelievable’: Auschwitz survivor recalls horrors of the Nazi death camp ahead of 94-year-old former guard’s trial
Reinhold Hanning (left), 94, is accused of serving as an SS ‘sergeant’ at the Auschwitz death camp (inset) in Nazi occupied Poland between 1943 and 1944 – a time when hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were gassed to death there. Survivor Leon Schwarzbaum (right), 94, the first witness to give evidence at the trial next week, still vividly remembers how the ‘chimneys were spewing fire… and the smell of burning human flesh was so unbelievable that one could hardly bear it’. Sat alongside other survivors, Schwarzbaum said it would be deeply unsettling to see Hanning in the courtroom on Thursday, but believed it was important to give the former SS man a chance to give a full account of the horrors that unfolded at Auschwitz.
