There were 3 million survivors of the Holocaust in 1945

Say what? Three million survivors? What kind of Holocaust is it when there are 3 million survivors?

I believe that there were 3 million survivors because the main food that was served in the camps was potatoes.

I am 85 and I believe that I have survived this long because my favorite food is potato salad, which I have eaten daily since I was a child. My family had a back yard garden, and half of the garden was planted in potatoes. I was the one who made the daily potato salad when I was a child.

Today I am commenting on this news article:

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

In 1945, there were more than 3 million Jewish survivors of the Holocaust. Today, that number has dwindled to less than 100,000.

At age 88, Irving Roth is one of them, and he still speaks out to audiences around the world about the horrors of the Holocaust and warns that we must prevent such evil from ever happening again.

Irving Roth was born in Kosice, Czechoslovakia, on September 2, 1929, and landed in New York Harbor in 1947 via Auschwitz and Buchenwald. The memories of the Nazi death camps never faded, and he devotes his time and efforts to educating young and old on the horrors of the Holocaust and the evils of prejudice and anti-Semitism.

End quote

3 million survivors? How did that happen? Did the Nazis have trouble killing those Jews who were surviving on potatoes? Why didn’t the Nazis poison the potatoes?
