estimated transgender population:  62*#

(rounded down)

ezs note:  The places that "Where's George" goes international!  Today, we visit Kolno, Poland.  Sadly, there is a terrible black mark on our little town.  Before World War II, the town was 70% Jewish.  Then the Nazis took over.  By the time they were through, there was only one left.

Not one percent.  

One person.

Our friends in the Jewish community have vowed to never forget.
We mustn't either.

# The estimated transgender population of .0058 of the United States is limited to that country.  Because of the size of that country, it is a good estimate.  However, other countries may vary.
