Names that Chill the Blood

From the Introduction to “Children on Death Row” A reminder of the horror of institutionalized, unchecked anti-Semitism:

death march 3

Even after more than seventy years, the names of these camps still chill the blood:

Auschwitz-Birkenau
Belzec
Chelmno
Janowska
Majdanek
Sobibor
Treblinka

The fate of the prisoners in Terezin was not fully known inside Terezin. But a clue was the fact that nobody returned from “Transports to the East.” A substantial part of the horror in Terezin was the waiting for death, to be always on the Death Row.
