Seymour Mayer was born in 1926 and grew up in Bistrita, Romania. Life in the
Transylvania countryside seemed nothing short of Idyllic. As the war in Europe
raged, this corner of the world remained relatively untouched by the Germans. In
1940 half of Transylvania, including his town, was ceded to Hungary. And then the
Nazis came. In the spring of 1944 the Germans deported Seymour, his family and all
the Jews from the region to Auschwitz. A year later the US Army liberated Seymour
from the hell and depravity of the camps. This is his harrowing tale.
