Ninety-year-old Holocaust survivor Hy Abrams poses for a portrait with a book that he carries with him every day that documents all the different concentration camps in which he was held during the Second World War.

It has been 70 years since the Soviet army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland, where Abrams was taken at age 20 by German Nazi soldiers and separated from his mother, father, brother and three sisters.
