Auschwitz Forced Laborers

Personnel records survive of two sons of Porozow who were arrested in the early 1940s and sent to the Auschwitz Concentration Camp. Like about one third of the 1.2 million who were forced to go there, they were not immediately put to death but rather used as forced laborers. The forms do not disclose their fate, but most such prisoners died in the months after their arrival.
