Last Man Standing
Three hundred prisoners are marched out of Auschwitz, only one returns. This is a factual story about a death march endured by a prisoner of Auschwitz during World War II. It was told to the author by the survivor who is still alive today, he turned 95 years old in August 2014. He is the grandfather of the author’s wife and endearingly known to all as “oppi”. A testament to oppi’s ability to survive, this story is but one of the many stories oppi freely shares with whomever is willing to lend him an ear. All these stories are contained within my book “The Auschwitz Garden

This short story is straight form the heart of author D.A.Cunningham and represents his way of dealing with the grief of losing his long-time friend and pet dog – Pongo. If you have a pet that will soon pass, please consider writing a similar story about your pet. Writing this short story was very difficult but proved to be very therapeutic as well. Pongo had a fantastic will to live but his old body slowly failed him. He passed away on July 29, 2014 at the age of 17 (that’s close to 120 in dog years).
