Deportation Train
Sculpture
Created by K-12th grade and College-Age Students
“And there we were
in that train,
over a hundred people...It was unbearable hot. Lack of air. So
some people had an idea that the minute we start moving it's
going to get cooler. But at one moment we heard that the gate
opened up in the boxcar, so we thought maybe they changed
their mind…instead they brought a few dozen Jews discovered
in a hiding place, they were all badly beaten up because they
were hiding. And soon we started to move. It didn't cool off. Me
being among the youngsters, I was asked to climb up those
packages, and look out to see where we were going. I started
reading signs… I also saw some Polish peasants lining the road.
They were probably used to those scenes, those trains. Some
made signs to us…I didn't tell the people what I saw.”
-Survivor Leo Schneiderman
Deportation from Hungary
Oil on Canvas
Created by K-12th grade and College-Age Students
Before the war, Hungary had become a
place of refuge for the Jews who had
fled from Hitler and the Nazi regime.
By 1944, the Holocaust enveloped
Hungary and in less than two months,
nearly 440,000 Jews were deported in
over 145 trains either to Auschwitz for
immediate extermination or to the
Austrian border where they were
subjected to forced labor. Beginning so
late into the war, it was shocking how
swift and fierce the deportation of the
Hungarian Jews took place.
Greek Deportation: Woman in Agony
Oil on Canvas
Created by K-12th grade and College-Age Students
The German occupation of Greece began
in 1941 with the invasion of German,
Italian, and Bulgarian forces. The
Germans brutally suppressed both the
non-Jewish and Jewish population
because of fierce Greek resistance
efforts. The young woman here is
weeping during the deportation of the
Jews of Ioannina, Greece ,on March 25,
1944. By April 11, 1944, the trains
carrying these Jews had reached
Auschwitz-Birkenau where nearly
everyone was immediately murdered.
