Holocaust Trains Holocaust Trains Holocaust Trains Holocaust Trains The Train Cars continued These cars were roughly 10 meters, or 31 feet in length, and had a width of 4 meters, or about 7 feet. If the train car had a roof or covering of any type, it would be an average of 7 feet in height.
Holocaust Trains The Advantages continued The use of trains sped up the scale at which mass extermination could occur. It also allowed the Nazis to operate more efficient death camps in an effective, cheap way. - The Numbers continued 50 people in a boxcar X 50 boxcars = 2,500 people in each convoy. This was the minimum standard load required by the SS, but it was seldom such minimums were not met. The Advantages continued The SS used the trains to convince the Jews that they were being sent to better living conditions, outside the ghetto. This kept the Jewish population, in general, more submissive and less resistant while they were being deported.
