The Holocaust Death March refers to the forcible movement of prisoner in Nazi Germany.
Most concentration Camps were destroyed with no evidence left behind so nobody can know what they were doing.
Thousands of prisoners died due to illness, trampled, shot, and just couldn't go anymore.
SS authorities did not want the prisoners to fall into enemy hands alive to tell their stories to allied and soviet liberators.
SS thought they needed prisoners to maintain production of armament whenever possible.
Evacuation began when allied forces began to get closer.
"If you couldn't walk you were shot, if you fell down you were shot. You either dropped dead or you were shot".
