Daily Mail: A quarter of all Holocaust victims were killed in just THREE MONTHS – and the rate of murder by the Nazis only slowed down when they ‘ran out of Jews to kill’
* Professor Lewi Stone carried out research into Operation Reinhard, a Nazi mass-murder operation perpetrated between 1942 and 1943
* Using train records, he estimated the rate at which Jews were killed in this period
* He thinks at least 15,000 died each day over the course of three months, making the operation the most intense period of human slaughter in the 20th century
* Records of the actual number of victims were destroyed by the Nazis
A quarter of all Holocaust victims were killed in a three-month mass murder operation that was the most intense period of human slaughter in the 20th century, new research suggests.
Professor Lewi Stone, a mathematical biologist at Tel Aviv University in Israel and RMIT University in Australia, made the claim after analysing train records linked to the Nazi’s Operation Reinhard.
Mr Stone used data from Holocaust historian Yitzhak Arad which catalogued trains running from towns and ghettos in occupied Poland to three notorious death camps – Belzec, Sobibor and Treblinka – during Reinhard.
