(National Post) Nazi murder rates at the height of the Holocaust was almost three times higher than previously thought, and only declined once there was “no one left to kill,” a study has found.

At the genocidal regime’s peak about 15,000 Jews were being murdered every day in the death camps of German-occupied Poland under Operation Reinhard.

Previous estimates suggested that 6,000 people were murdered daily at Auschwitz alone, but exact figures were difficult to verify because the deaths were covered up by the Nazis.
