Statistical Analyses of Theresienstadt Prisoners
Examples and Future Possibilities
Keywords:Survival, Holocaust, Theresienstadt, Quantitative analysis
This article uses a near-complete database of prisoners in the Theresienstadt Ghetto to provide statistical comparisons of death risks according to country of residence and gender, conditional on age, social status proxies, and the timing of the prisoners’ arrival in the ghetto. We also estimate conditional Holocaust survival differences for Theresienstadt prisoners on transports to Auschwitz. Our aim is to complement the existing historical research on Theresienstadt and to illustrate the possibilities of statistical analysis of the Holocaust in the present-day Czech Republic. To this end, we also discuss other available data.
