Summary

On line assignment

Gi Ri's insight:

From this project I learnt more about Majdanek: I learnt about Lublin, the nearest city to Majdanek; Majdanek survivor like Israel Gutman and Rudolf Varba (and there are more ); the gas chambers in Majdanek and about one guard, who maybe was the meanest.

 

Moreover, from this project I made a presentation which I would present in the high school where I learnt.

(The presentation is in Hebrew and therefore I didn't upload it to this page).

Sonderkommando - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sonderkommandos were work units of Nazi death camp prisoners, composed almost entirely of Jews, who were forced, on threat of their own deaths, to aid with the disposal of gas chamber victims during The Holocaust. The death-camp Sonderkommando, who were always inmates, should not be confused with the SS-Sonderkommandos which were units formed from various SS officers between 1938 through 1945.
