According to Wiki, "today’s Ashkenazi Jews descend from a population of only 350 individuals who lived about 600–800 years ago." How is this possible?

Does anyone have more information about this? Because also according Wiki, there were anywhere from 250,000 to a million Ashkenazi Jews alive during that time period. How is possible that most of their descendants were wiped out, died without having children, or assimilated and disappeared?
