Nazi murder rate far higher than thought and only declined when there was 'no one left to kill'

'It is not surprising therefore that the killing rate accelerated, as Stone shows, as it became more efficient. '

'At the regimeâ\x80\x99s murderous peak, around 15,000 Jews were slaughtered every day in the death camps of German-occupied Poland under Operation Reinhard, new research shows. '

'The number of deaths during those three months is so huge, it accounts for more than a quarter of the five million known Holocaust victims. '

'Most of the victims of Operation Reinhard - the Nazi mission to wipe out Polish Jews - were gassed to death and their bodies buried in pits. '

'The results showed that of the 1.7 million people killed between 1942 and 1943 under Operation Reinhard, about 1.32 million died in a 100-day surge between August and October of 1942. '
