No matter how many times Anita Dittman tells stories of her holocaust days, she breaks down in tears every single time.

As a little girl, she was told she had a wonderful future as a ballerina. She came from a wealthy family, lived in a nice, suburban-type home with her parents and sister.

"Then Adolf Hitler came to power and things began to change," she said.

She was tortured, sexually harassed, starved and forced to work for the Nazis.
