First Two Transports of Hungarian Jews Arrive at Auschwitz

Hungarian Jews Arrive at Auschwitz, May 26, 1944

In Auschwitz, the first two transports of Hungarian Jews arrive. During May and June, Hungarian Jews arrive at Auschwitz at a rate of 12,000 a day.

Most Hungarian Jews are gassed immediately upon arrival and without ever going through any sort of selection process — over 434,000 between now and July. Only a few are allowed to live and only a few thousand survive the end of World War II.
