“We were disinfected, I listened to the radio for the first time, and saw the lights, as if I was re-born,” he told the audience.

He was the only veteran of Ukrainian origin who took part in the show. The broadcast proceeded in a special way: the host named a country which fought against Nazism. For example, France, Greece, Yugoslavia, Then a national song was played in the native language and a veteran representing the country shared his memories.

The Ukrainian veteran, therefore, recalled “a wonderful concentration camp” in Kowel.

Sounds like the guy was describing a near-death experience.
