A comprehensive new study released by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum shows that as many as 42,500 ghettos and concentration camps were operated by Nazi Germany throughout Europe from 1933 to 1945.

Even seasoned Holocaust scholars were surprised by the results of the 13-year study.

“The numbers are so much higher than what we originally thought,” Hartmut Berghoff, director of the German Historical Institute, said after learning of the new data, the New York Times reported.

“We knew before how horrible life in the camps and ghettos was,” he said, “but the numbers are unbelievable.”

The data from the report indicates that there were more than “30,000 slave labor camps; 1,150 Jewish ghettos; 980 concentration camps; 1,000 prisoner-of-war camps; 500 brothels filled with sex slaves; and thousands of other camps used for euthanizing the elderly and infirm, performing forced abortions, ‘Germanizing’ prisoners or transporting victims to killing centers,” according to the New York Times.

Researchers said they only initially expected to find around 7,000 sites, but the number kept rising.

The revelation of additional camps may also help Holocaust victims in their legal claims against European insurance companies such as Allianz.

In 2006, as part of a settlement by the International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims, Allianz and other insurance companies paid out more than $306 million to 48,000 claimants. But Holocaust survivors and their supporters claim that Allianz still owes them nearly $2 billion.

“How many claims have been rejected because the victims were in a camp that we didn’t even know about?” asked Sam Dubbin, a Florida lawyer who represents a group of survivors seeking to bring claims against European insurance companies, according to the New York Times.

    The Nazis

    The Nazi SS also known as “SS” — a shortened name for the “Knights of the Holy See” is a Roman Catholic spiritual and military order first formed in 1933 based completely upon the Jesuit order structure upon the signing of the “sacred” Reich Concordat specifically through the application of Articles 1,12,15,21 and 33 with the enaction of Clause (c) of the “Secret Supplement” of the Concordat between Franz von Papen (on behalf of Nazi Germany) and Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli (Pope Pius XII).

    The Vatican needs to be sued and have its doors closed for good for crimes against Humanity.

    After teaching about the Holocaust for more than thirty-five years both in the Chicago area and in Israel, I am left speechless with this new information. The ineffable scope of the Catastrophe has become many times more daunting and overwhelming and appalling.

    Disturbing. Especially the last question : “They had to know what was happening (the germans)”.

    In France, negationism and revisionism are very fashion. Thanks to free speech !
