A Studio portrait of a young Jewish girl, Eva Nemova, shortly before her deportation in November, 1941, from Prague.

Eva Nemova was born in 1937 and she later perished in Theresienstadt or Auschwitz.

The SS officer Kurt Gerstein witnessed the gassing of the Jews and later wrote down his evidence of the extermination:

"They asked him what was going to happen and he answered: 'The men will have to work, build houses and streets. The women won't have to do that, they will be busy with the housework and the kitchen.'

This was the last hope for some of these poor people, enough to make them march toward the death chambers without resistance. The majority knew everything; the smell betrayed it!

They climbed a little wooden stairs and entered the death chambers, most of them silently, pushed by those behind them. A Jewess of about forty with eyes like fire cursed the murderers; she disappeared into the gas chambers after being struck several times by Captain Wirth's whip.

Many prayed; others asked" 'Who will give us the water before we die?' [A Jewish rite] SS men pushed the men into the chambers. 'Fill it up,' Wirth ordered; 700-800 people ... The doors closed."
