Obviously, it was absolute hell. The process was a prolonged attack on the **whole person** of each victim. Please bear in mind that before being sent to a camp many victims had been forced to live for several months of longer in ghettos where they didn't have enough to eat. Then there was the rail journey in enclosed cattle trucks (rather like box cars) to the camps. In many cases it was a very long journey indeed, without food and often without anything to drink. So it began ... I hope this gives you some idea. Joncey
