What type of work did the Jews do in the Holocaust?
They were put to forced labor in mining or the German armaments
industry; some crushed rock, some forged documents, money and works
of art, some moved rocks, some built V-2 Rockets, some stacked
rocks, some, as subjects, were abused in scientific and
pseudo-scientific experiments, but mostly they were made until they
died or were no longer fit to work and were sent to die. The nature
of their work wasn't important (in principle) to the Nazis. They
were rented out as laborers for a pittance. This pittance times
millions filled the SS coffers, and nothing was wasted. The
prisoners' hair was sold at 50 pfennig per kilo (7 tons were
confiscated at Auschwitz), and before cremation their gold teeth
were extracted as Judengeld for the support of the war effort.
