The woman in the documentary I saw was moved to at least three different camps.  Auschwitz was the second-to-last one she was taken to, and it wasn’t even the worst.  I can’t remember the name of the worse one, but it sounded like there were dead bodies laying around and no work to be done.  This was just before the end of the war.
