Additional Information: 

Between 1941 and 1945, roughly six million Jewish individuals were systematically targeted and killed by the German Nazi party. Many were taken to concentration camps where they were forcibly tattooed with identification numbers, such as the one seen depicted here. In 1944, both men and women at the camp Auschwitz were given numbers in an "A" series; unlike the number shown here, this "A" series concluded in the mid 25,000s. Many pieces of holocaust remembrance paraphernalia feature the Hebrew word "Zakar", or "Zachor", which literally translates as "remember." It is featured here using the Hebrew alphabet to ensure the the catastrophic tragedy is never forgotten.
