    Yes - Jewish kids only as far as I've ever read.

    One terribly interesting thing about the Holocaust that a lot of people don't know is that the murder and torture of these people - many of them Jews - was illegal even under German law. This is one reason why the concentration camps were such a deep secret - and toward the end of the war, the SS guys knew they'd be tried as war criminals.... because they were war criminals.

    I believe it was only Jewish twins since they were being put in the concentration camps and being mistreated and killed.

    It's sad that they were used and thrown away :( Look up Josef Mengele.
