Women in Auschwitz


A total of over 130,000 women were registered in the Auschwitz complex. They were mostly Jews (82,000), Poles (31,000) and Roma (11,000). Several hundred Jewish women - the elderly, disabled, sick and pregnant, as well as mothers with small children - were classified during selection on the ramp as unfit for labor. They were murdered in the gas chambers immediately after arrival. (The Auschwitz - Birkenau Memorial. A Guidebook. 2016)
