Researchers at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. have unearthed new evidence that reveals the holocaust was much more widespread than previously thought.

In all, the researchers cataloged some 42,500 Nazi ghettos and camps throughout Europe — from France to Russia and Germany, according to The New York Times.

“The numbers are so much higher than what we originally thought,” explained Hartmut Berghoff, director of the German Historical Institute in Washington.

“We knew before how horrible life in the camps and ghettos was,” he said, “but the numbers are unbelievable.”

The researchers counted thousands of forced labor camps, prisoner-of-war camps, so-called “care” centers, and brothels during Hitler’s reign of terror between 1933-1945, the Times reported

Researchers analyzed data from approximately 400 contributors to document the existence of so many camps and ghettos for the first time on such a large scale, the Times reported.
