1. An incident at Bonegilla.

1949

A Lithuanian Jew, seeing a group of his countrymen gathered at the Victorian Bonegilla processing camp walked over and spoke to one of them.

‘Do you remember the time you were supervising the slaughter of Jews?’*

The man gave no response.

‘I managed to run away from the very edge of the ditch you had us dig for our bodies.’

‘And I remember you very well.’

Excerpt taken from Whoever Saves One Life .. Dalia Kuodytė.

*Lithuanian anti-Soviet partisans and members of the Schutzmannschaffen (Police) were conscripted and run by the German SS.
