קינות 1

 1) The ר"א הקליר wrote 50 קינות for Tisha B'av. We say
only 19 of them.

2) We say.  3
קינות written for the גזירת תתנ"ו (crusades) 

  unknown       החרישו ממני  
מי יתן ראש  ר' קלונימס ב' יהודה
33 אבל אעורר     ר' מנחם ב' מכיר

3) The ראב"ן wrote re the crusades that it is unheard of
1000 עקידות (killings) per day
(There was one-day when they killed 1300)

Unfortunately, this is no longer relevant today because,
during the deportation of Hungarian Jews in the spring
of 1944, Auschwitz-Birkenau reached peak killing
capacity: the SS
ימ"ש gassed as many as 6,000 Jews
each day

4) In the קינה, ארזי הלבנון re the  עשרה הרוגי מלכות, you will
only find 8 and not 10   
(I don't know why)
