France’s eldest Auschwitz survivor dies, aged101

Henriette Cohen, France’s oldest survivor of Nazi Germany’s Auschwitz concentration camp, has died. She was 101. Born in 1917, Cohen was detained with her mother-in-law in a Gestapo round-up in May 1944, near Marseille. The following month, they were deported to Auschwitz. Cohen was consigned to forced labour. Her mother-in-law was sent directly to the gas chambers. Surviving cold, hunger and exhaustion, Cohen returned to France in 1945 weighing just 35 kg.
