In the photo above, notice the faint tattoo on the arm that has a Rolex watch.

The following quote is from this news article: http://billingsgazette.com/news/state-and-regional/montana/holocaust-survivor-irving-roth-to-tell-his-story-in-helena/article_f05dd6c0-f98f-531f-9939-cb0eb151af16.html

Begin quote
By July and August 1941, the Nazis [had] rounded up Jewish men, women and children in Poland and Western Russia, he [Roth] said.

Many [Jews] were ordered into ditches and shot. [Roth said]

“This is too costly,” Roth recounted the Nazis’ discussions. “Every Jew takes five bullets to kill.” [the Nazis said]

That’s when some Germans came up with a more efficient method of murder — the death camps. Running gas chambers and crematoriums around the clock, they [some Germans] killed 6 millions Jews.

“The next chapter is winding up in a cattle car,” he said, and being shipped to Auschwitz and later Buchenwald.
