What was the average age of the Jews killed?

That would depend upon how you calculate the average. People of all ages were killed, so say from ages 0 to 80 giving an average of 40, but if you wanted a weighted average; with there being more people in their twenties than in their seventies, that might give you an average of 35. There are more results which you could call 'average', but just know that no age group was exempt. Survival rates of people over fifty were extremely low and very low for those over forty, also survival rates for those under about 13 were very low aswell.
