Israeli study: 1/4 of Jews killed in Holocaust murdered in 100 days in 1942 (TOI)
Prof. Stone analyzes train data to conclude that 1.5 million Jews were slain in 3-month ‘hyperintense’ phase that only slowed because there were few Jews left in occupied Poland

A new Israeli study claims that almost a quarter of the Jews murdered in the Holocaust were killed during 100 days in 1942, making it the period with the highest killing rate in the 20th century.

The killings between August and October 1942 included Jews murdered in the Auschwitz extermination camp, in Ukraine and as part of the infamous Operation Reinhard — an intense mass-slaughter campaign carried out by Nazi Germany between March 1942 and November 1943 in death camps Treblinka, Belzec and Sobibor (that operation alone eventually killed some 1.7 million Polish Jews).
