  • Facts 12 & 13 ● The Holocaust Remembrance Day marks the liberation of the AuschwitzBirkenau death camps in 1945. ● Over 1.1 million children died during the Holocaust.
  • Fact 14 ● Young children were particularly targeted by the Nazis to be murdered during the Holocaust. They posed a unique threat because if they lived, they would grow up to parent a new generation of Jews. Many children suffocated in the crowded cattle cars on the way to the camps. Those who survived were immediately taken to the gas chambers.
  • Fact 15 Usually Jewish prisoners, called Sonderkommando, were forced to bury corpses or burn them in ovens. Most Sonderkommandos were regularly gassed because the Nazis did not want eyewitnesses. Fewer than 20 of the serveral thousand Sonderkommandos survived, and some of the Sonderkommandos buried their testimony in jars before their deaths. Ironically, the Sonderkommandos were dependent on the continued shipment of Jews to concentration camps for staying alive.
