1The Holocaust was where millions of Jews were killed.

2The Holocaust began in January 1933 and ended May 8, 1945.

3One of the very first concentration camps were built in March 1933.

4In September 1941 more than 33,000 Jews were killed in 2 days.

5The Holocaust wouldn't have been possible without mass transportation.

6The longest transport of the war was 18 days, when the doors opened to the transport, everyone was already dead.

7At treblinka more than 870,00 Jews where killed with a staff 150.

Nazis did not want eyewitnesses, most Jews were regularly gassed, and ever than 100 known survivors of Treblinka.

9Fewer than 20 Jews of several thousands survived.

10The einsatzgruppen (task force) killed over 1.2 million Jews.

12 100,000 Jews died during “death marches.”

13The first concentration camp was Dachau.

14Pregnant woman children injured sick and elderly people where immediately killed.

15The first instance of mass murder by gas by Hitler happened on November 15, 1939.

16Many children couldn't in the crowded cattle cars on the way to the camps.

17Those who survived were taken to the gas chambers.

18The young children were targeted by the nazi's to be killed during the holocaust.

19Over one million people were murdered at the Auschwitz camp, more than at any other place.

20On December 17, 1942, the Western Allies publicly denounced the massacre of the Jewish people, but they failed to do anything about it.

21In Dachau, the daily death rate in the days following liberation was 200, and in Bergen-Belsen it was 300.

Bergen-Belson was the first camp to be liberated by Western Allied officers on April 15, 1945.

Some Jews buried their testimony in jars before their deaths.

Of the nine million Jews who lived in Europe before the Holocaust, an estimated 2/3 were murdered.
