I'm writing a report by interpreting myself as a Jew during the holocaust and I have to write a journal entry about 8 to 10 sentences describing the time spent on the way to my concentration camp. I was wondering, how far it was from Holland to Auschwitz?

  • English -

    When I meant how far, I meant how far in days

    609 miles

    In an airplane going 550 mph, that would take 1 hour, 6 minutes.

    If a train were going 40 mph* how many hours would it take to go 609 miles?

    ------------------------
    *40 mph is just a guess. If you find out how fast or slow trains traveled in those days, use that number.

  • English -

    The distance between Amsterdam and Auschwitz is about 800 miles. A train could have made the journey in 1944 in 2 or 3 days. However, it's likely that trains carrying Jews took much longer.

    Thanks, Writeacher. I couldn't find the exact distance.

    thanks!

    You're welcome.
