Pictured here are two children wearing the Jewish badge in the Kovno Ghetto in Feb 1944. On March 27, 1944, the Germans mounted a Children’s Aktion, entering the ghetto when parents were at work and taking about 2,000 of the children and elderly to be killed. On the same day, the entire Jewish ghetto police force was taken to the Ninth Fort (see bottom photo) where 40 of the 130 policemen were shot. About 3,000 Kovno Jews survived the war.
