    Dehumanizing process

    How far can go endoctrinated men's blindness and barbarity ?

    Arrests start in 1941 and increase until 1944.

    Whole trains of men, women and children leave for camps...

    Truck door

    In cattle trucks for 8 horses, or 40 soldiers, over 120 crowded internees, leave for an agonizing journey, lasting nights and days, without any hope of returning. Many of them succumb to asphyxia and to the torture of overcrowding.

    Concentration camp , death camp...
