Auschwitz-Birkenau survivor Bronia Brandman, 86, returned to the death camp on April 27 for the first time since her liberation, accompanied by a delegation of Israel Defense Forces (IDF) officers and 40 Friends of the Israel Defense Forces (FIDF) supporters from across the United States. Brandman, who now lives in Brooklyn, N.Y. and vowed never to return to Poland, decided to return to Auschwitz as part of the FIDF “From Holocaust to Independence” delegation to Poland and Israel for the first time since the Red Army liberated the camp in 1945.
