Willam Harvey's Shoah tale - Weighed 72 lbs at 20-yrs-old when liberated - Survived the Auschwitz and Buchenwald "death" camps
William is a jew from what's now the Czek Republic.
When William was 12 years old, he says he heard a chilling broadcast on the radio. "I heard Hitler speak on the radio to the world, and he said: ’I’m going to kill every Jew in the world."
William survived stints at the Auschwitz "extermination" camp as well as the Buchenwald "death" camp.
He says he weighed just 72 pounds when he was liberated by American troops in the spring of 1945.
