A woman who lost more than 65 members of her family in the Nazi Holocaust spoke of her devastating experiences, as part of a national commemoration. Mrs Collins was just five when she was bundled onto a train by her mother and family doctor with no idea where she was going on June 30, 1939. She had no idea that she would never see her mother, Hilda Altschul, or father, Otto Heinz, again. Both were to die in Poland’s concentration camps.
