By April 1945, eighteen-year-old Dave Hersch had already survived nearly a year in the hell of Mauthausen, rated by the Nazis as the most monstrous concentration camp in the entire Reich. Though emaciated and barely alive, he was then ordered onto a 34-mile death march. He never reached his destination. Instead, he escaped. Recaptured a short while later, he was inexplicably not killed but instead was returned to Mauthausen. Put on another death march a week later, Dave did the impossible: he escaped again.
Author Jack Hersch tells his father’s story at our Holocaust Memorial Day speaker event – Death March Escape: The Remarkable Story of a Man Who Twice Escaped the Nazi Holocaust. To purchase this book, click HERE.
