Jews who had just undergone selection at Auschwitz-Birkenau and were classified as “not fit for work” in a grove before being gassed. The undressing rooms of the crematorium were not sufficient to handle the vast numbers of Hungarian Jews arriving daily in the summer of 1944. Many had to wait in the grove beside the crematorium, exhausted and in a state of shock from the horrors of the journey and the selection process that they had just endured. Most had no idea what fate awaited them

These children at Auschwitz, liberated by the Soviet Army on January 27, 1945, show their tattooed arms to the photographer. Everyone imprisoned in Auschwitz had his or her arm tattooed with an identification number. This served two purposes. First, it allowed camp officials to keep track of the thousands of prisoners in the camp. Second, making the inmates into nameless units served to dehumanize them

This was found in the personal album of an Einsatzgruppen soldier. It was labelled on the back “The last Jew of Vinnitsa”. All 28,000 of the Jews living there were killed at the time. Let NO ONE forget...or EVER deny that these horrible atrocities were committed.
