“The Polish woman Janina Nowak (# 7615), sent to Auschwitz in a group transport on June 12, 1942, escapes from a labor sqaud raking hay near the Sola River. After the escape is discovered, the unit of 200 Polish women is taken to the camp punishment roll call.” They are sent to the Penal Company and there hair is cut off, so they look like the Jewish female prisoners.
“Two female prisoners sent in a group transport receive Nos. 7959 and 7960.
933 Jewish men* and 66 Jewsih women sent by RSHA from the Drancy camp in France receive Nos. 40681-41613 and 7961-8026″ (Czech 186).
* By August 15, 1942, only 186 men are still alive, i.e. within 7.5 weeks 747 deportees die. [There is no record of how many women died in the same amount of time.]
