U.S. History/holocaust

Question
QUESTION: I've been reading about the holocaust.  They tattooed
millions of Jews with numbers, kind of a numbering system.
There was a reason for the numbering.
   A tattoo expert I talked to said it would take 75
years to tattoo 6 million Jews.
         I'm puzzled.   Do you have an explanation?

     Thanks          Dick

ANSWER: Hi,
Not everyone got them. Only those who picked to work at the concentration camp. The ones that went gas chamber did not get one. www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007056
I have seen them 3 times at local Polish restaurant. They are quite real.

QUESTION: Thanks for the answer.
At Babi Yar at Kiev (and Pinsk) 18,000 were killed in one day.
This involved moving, removing, stacking,cremating, tattooing,
gassing, piling, sorting, clothes and money, gold teeth, recording,
etc.  In ONE day.  
   Two questions          
    Were the killers fast?
    Was there a pile corpses higher than the trees?

Answer
At Kiev there was no death camp there were simply murdered, mostly forced to strip shot and fell into a trench that covered back with a bulldozer. http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/media_ph.php?ModuleId=10005421&MediaId=2477 No gassing they mostly shot on mass. No tattooing, no cremating, no tooth removal no stacked or moved bodies. Clothing was collected. The German MG 34 fires 900 rounds a minute. Completely doable.
