NAPLES, Fla. - Abe Price of Naples has one goal in life: to remind people of the horrors of the holocaust.
He lost 200 members of his extended family to the Nazis. He escaped 5 times from camps or prison factories, and credits pure luck for his survival. He says the Nazi's killed between 12 and 20-thousand Jews a day at Birkenau extermination camp.
"As a Jew, it is amazing I lived. I credit some good people in Poland who helped to hide me when I escaped," he told WINK.
Sunday is Holocaust Remembrance Day. It marks 65 years since Allied troops liberated the death camp at Auschwitz, and other Nazi camps.
