    Between mid-May and mid-July, 1944, 500,000 Hungarian Jews were transported to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Four trains, made up of cattle trucks and other closed goods wagons, arrived daily over 58 days- one each for the four gas chambers and sets of crematoria located at the western end of the death camp. Some 20% of the transported people, 100,000, were selected for the work camps that surrounded Birkenau.

    400,000 were marked for death. The picture, from The Auschwitz Album, shows some of those walking to their doom.

    There's wealth and splendour to be seen in the photo with the wide range of shops for many needs and people in fancy clothes but in the middle stands a young child bare footed.

    The ones that could not afford shoes ( which there were many ) must have had very tough soles on their feet . I am being serious . I remember my mother telling me that when she was young ( I am guessing 1935 / 1940 -ish ) that children who went to school with her did not have shoes ( could not afford ) .

    20/25 miles from Galway City .

    I've got really into old photos of Dublin, mid 1800s to early 1900s, and the photos of poor children bare footed is really shocking to see. People had big families then and jobs in Dublin were very occasional and seasonal, especially on the docks. Rent was high as well, higher than Belfast where there was a higher proportion of income. I read a book recently on the Dublin tenements and children going around bare footed continued into the 1950s, perhaps even into the early 1960s.
