During the Holocaust 6 million Jews were murdered. In 1933 there were about 9.5 million Jews who lived in Europe. Worldwide there were an estimated 15.3 million. This is just to give you an indication of the impact of the Holocaust.
The number of 6 million is often disputed. not only by Holocaust deniers but also by people like me. For I believe that number is higher, although I have no data to back that up. I do however know that some numbers were not included, for example the number of still births. Many of these still births would not have happened.
The picture above is of a gravestone Frank Ludwig Rosenthal. There is only one date on the stone. 13 May 1945. This is because it was the day he was born and the day he died.
You can also see the name Westerbork, this was his place of birth and his place of death. Sadly the date is 8 days of the liberation of the Netherlands. So may were still too weak to move out of the concentration camps even after liberation.
Who knows how many babies have died while on transport? These deaths weren’t registered because these babies were more often then not just disposed as if they were garbage.
I have stopped trying to fathom that figure of 6 million. The fact is none of these people should have been murdered.
Poor baby Frank Ludwig Rosenthal may have been too young to be remembered but he is also to young to be forgotten.
