D4 Orphans

In May 1944, 35 Roma and Sinti orphans were deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau from St Joseph’s Orphanage in Mulfi ngen, which was run by nuns. The church did not protest against the deportation of the children, nor try to save them. Some of the children were subsequently used for medical experiments by SS doctors in Auschwitz. Only three of the 35 children survived.
