April 14

1943

The White House turns down a request from American-Jewish
leaders for a meeting with Roosevelt prior to the
forthcoming inter-Allied conference on refugees in Bermuda.
(USHMM 1993, p. 30)

In mid-April, thirty-four part-Jewish German children are
killed at the Hadamar State Sanitarium as part of Germany's
"euthanasia" program, although none was physically or
emotionally handicapped. The murders represent the extension
of the killing process to part-Jews, a matter discussed at
the Wannsee Conference of January 1942 but never before
implemented. (Ibid.)

1944

First Allied air-reconnaissance photographs are taken of
Auschwitz I, the town of Auschwitz (Oswiecim), the I.G.
Farben factories, and the Auschwitz III complex (also known
as Monowitz). (USHMM 1994, 38)

The `Draft Convention on the Trial and Punishment of War
Criminals' is issued. (Ibid.)

Mass arrests of Jews in France are ordered. Incentives
include the payment of rewards to informers. (Ibid.)

SS Brigadier General Veesenmayer reports that Hungarian
Prime Minister Sztojay promised that by the end of April at
least 50,000 Hungarian Jews fit for work will be made
available to the Germans, beginning with 5,000 Jews
effective immediately and 5,000 more every three to four
days until the number of 50,000 has been reached. An
additional 50,000 Jews are to be made available in May, and
the number of Jewish labor draftees inside Hungary is to be
raised to 100,000 to 150,000. (Ibid.)

A transport of five hundred prisoners is sent from Stutthof
concentration camp to Neuengamme concentration camp. (Ibid.)
