BERLIN, GERMANY - OCTOBER 18: People arrive to lay roses at the Gleis 17 (Track 17) memorial on the 70th anniversary of the deportation of Jews from Berlin to concentration camps during World War II on October 18, 2011 in Berlin, Germany. On October 18, 1941, the Nazis began deporting Jewish residents of Berlin by rail to concentration camps, including to Theresienstadt and later to Auschwitz. In all approximately 56,000 Berlin Jews were deported and killed between 1941 and 1945, and today a memorial at Track 17, the original platform from which many Jews were crowded into freight cars for deportation, lists the dates, origins, destinations and numbers of Jews transported.
