Henri Landwirth, Founder of HateHurts
Henri Landwirth was born March 7, 1927 in pre-World War II Antwerp, Belgium. During the war, when he was between the ages of 13 and 18, Henri was separated from his family and shuffled among five Nazi death and labor camps—Auschwitz, Matthausen, Gusen I , Gusen II, and Ostrowitz. Near the end of the war, he and four other prisoners were marched into the woods to be killed. At the last minute, a Nazi soldier decided to spare their lives and told them to run into the woods when they heard the shots he would fire over their heads.
