On March 26, 65 years ago, the deportation of Slovak Jews to concentration camps started.
The first deportation took place in the town of Poprad. Today, students of Slovak secondary schools in Poprad, together with participants of the Days of Jewish Culture, will march from the Pod Gerlachom former army headquarters (today a secondary school) to the railway station from which the first deportation left at 20:20. One-thousand Jewish girls and women were taken from there to Auschwitz.
