Prisoners march to their death in the Majdanek concentration camp. To prevent further resistance, SS ordered the killing of surviving Jews in the Lublin District of German-occupied Poland. Music was played through loudspeakers at both Majdanek and Trawniki to drown out the noise of the mass shootings. The killing at Majdanek 33,000, was the largest single-day, single-location massacre during the Holocaust.
