Peter, many thanks for the very educational information! This is sad, as it puts real faces and personalities to the "statistics."
I have read a reasonable amount about the Holocaust, but was not aware of this Briefaktion. I had read that Theresienstadt
was used as a "model camp" to fool the Red Cross, but had no idea of the degree to which they went, or the regularly scheduled
executions of the prisoners in the model camp. Thank you for sharing this!
