The Stutthof concentration camp was built in a wet, wooded area east of Gdansk (Danzig), Poland. It was the first camp the Germans built outside of Germany and the last to be liberated by the Allies. Our cousin, Chaim Kuritsky, was among the few prisoners who managed to survive imprisonment in this place of unbearable brutality. We visited the site in 2012 when I was helping Chaim publish an English translation of his memoir, To Survive and to Tell the Story.
