Considering that it violates the Hebrew faith to have a tattoo, along with the whole idea of reducing a human being to a number, I would say it was a rather traumatic experience! But then that was the intent, to make others see these human beings as not being human. That way it was much easier to exterminate six million Jews, along with seven million other Europeans. Hopefully the world will not forget, for if it does, it shall happen again. Richard V. Horrell WW 2 As a note of irony, the SS were also tattooed, with blood group (in case they were wounded). Those tattoos were used to hunt them down after the war, about as effectively as they had used tattoos to hunt their victims.
