BELGRADE, Apr. 9
Aca Singer, who lost 65 members of his family in the Holocaust, says he didn’t survive Auschwitz to die from an American bomb.
“When the Americans bombed the death camps at the end of World War II, I was very happy,” he said, sitting in the library of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Yugoslavia, which he heads. “Then I thought, ‘Kill me if necessary, but kill the Nazis.’ And a lot of Jews died at the end from U.S. bombers, and we were not unhappy to see the bombs.”
