April 9

1944

Gurs is reactivated as an internment camp after being
deserted for seven months; twenty-six French Gypsy prisoners
from Saliers internment camp (Bouches-du-Rhone) are
transferred to Gurs. (USHMM 1994, 37)

The Hungarian Ministry of Internal Affairs orders the
deportation of Jews in Hungarian-occupied areas of
Yugoslavia. (Ibid.)

The first transport of 1,725 prisoners evacuated from
Majdanek arrives in Auschwitz. Originally destined for the
Mauthausen concentration camp, the transport was rerouted to
Auschwitz when Mauthausen denied entry because that camp was
overfilled. En route, twenty prisoners were shot, and ninety
died; an additional eighty-six die during the first night
after arrival at Auschwitz. (Ibid.)
