The most amazing story. A Facebook friend's father saw an article in the New York Times with my friend Werner Reich. He said his tattoo was 10 higher than Werner's, which means they were both boys in the same line at Auschwitz.

Werner Reich and Walter Spier are both 89, both born in October, both in Auschwitz in 1944. Their tattoos are 10 numbers apart. They were in the same 3 concentration camps, Terezin, Auschwitz, on the death march and Mauthasen where they were both liberated.
