Dear Charlotte,

Thanks you for posting these details. As you know I have over the past
year or two posted this same query on H-Holocaust and this is the first
time anyone has come up with some type of references. It is amazing to
see how poorly documented this area is in terms of Holocaust studies (at
least in the West). Maly Trostinets was probably the 5th or 6th largest
extermination area.

I saw one such marker with my own eyes, giving the 800,000 victim
number--others with lower numbers. Some 'only' a few hundred.
My non-Jewish co-author/friend here in the US argued with me about these
numbers (also?) stating 'there were no such large numbers killed, or it would
be in the history books'.
Well, I won't "back down", pls don't misunderstand me: I don't think you doubt
my word. I SAW this number and others (in arabic nbrs) engraved on various
memorial monuments and was -for the same reason- totally blown away by it.
