Two Murdered Families

There were, of course, millions of families murdered during the Holocaust. The reason why I am focusing on only two families today is that they were young families. Both families had a child who would have had their 80th birthday today.

I am only giving the details of their births and their deaths, The only thing that we have to know is that there was absolutely no reason for these families to be murdered.

André Schelvis was born in Amsterdam on 9 January 1943. He was murdered in Sobibor on 23 July 1943 reaching the age of six months.

Aron Schelvis was born in Amsterdam on 4 May 1915 and murdered in Sobibor on 23 July 1943. He reached the age of 28.
