I am not a great fan of statistics because without the full story behind them, they can be manipulated and often they are.
However sometimes they can be useful to indicate a scale, In this the scale of death and destruction during the Holocaust.
Between July 15,1942 and 13 September 1944 107,000 Jews were deported from Westerbork in the Netherlands to other camps in Europe, mainly eastern Europe and for the majority to the death camps.
107,000 people over 97 transports, which is an average of about 1,103 people per transport. Just think of that for a minute.
If you have come to terms with that number , then leave this sink in 107,000 is only about 1.6% of the total numbers of Jews murdered.
