February 13

1943

The Jews of Djerba in Axis-occupied Tunisia are ordered to
pay 10 million francs to the German authorities. (USHMM,
1993. Pg. 23)

The New York Times reports from London that the
collaborationist Romanian government has offered to move the
surviving seventy thousand Jews deported to Transnistria --
thousands of others had already been killed in pogroms and
at forced labor -- to safety in Palestine or any other
refuge chosen by the Allies. Romania reportedly asks only
for payment of transportation costs. Within the next days,
British officials reject the plan as blackmail, while the
State Department dismisses it as German propaganda. However,
the World Jewish Congress representatives in Geneva begins
to explore the Romanian offer. (Ibid.)
