In this talk, we will be discussing the experience of the Ovitz family, Romanian dwarves who were taken to Auschwitz in 1944 for being Jewish. Attention will be given to how Dr Josef Mengele, the sadistic doctor of Auschwitz, took particular interest in this family, how the family were treated, and consideration will be given to the possible reasons why this extraordinary family are still unfamiliar to many.
