During the Holocaust Torahs would be taken by the Nazis. After they were taken the Nazis would paint numbers on them. They would also put a tag with the swastika on the Torah's handles. Afterwords they would place the torah's number it was tattooed with in a book with all the other taken torah's numbers were put down. Then they would be placed on a shelf wherever they were being hidden by the Nazis. After the Holocaust some of the Torahs that were hidden in the Holocaust were found, but still to this day, not all of the Torahs were found and a lot of them were burned.
