2009

Stephen Tyrone Johns is murdered by an 88-year-old Holocaust
denier, James von Brunn. Mr. Johns was employed as a
security guard at the United States Holocaust Memorial
Museau when Johns entered the facility with a long gun and
opened fire.

1940

The J.A. Topf u. Sohne Maschinenfabrik und Feuerungstechnisches
Baugeschaft (Machinery and Furnace Equipment Factory) of Erfurt
drew up blueprints for a coke-fired furnace for cremating 
corpses at the Auschwitz concentration camp. The blueprint was
approved and filed under the number D-57253. (Czech et al, p. 121)

1943

The `Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland' (National
Association of Jews in Germany) is dissolved, and all its
functionaries are deported as part of an effort to rid
Berlin of Jews and ostensibly in retaliation for a minor
sabotage attack by the Baum Group, a small Communist Jewish
underground anti-Nazi organization. (USHMM 1993, 36)

The United Churches of the Netherlands appeals to
Reichskommissar Artur Seyss-Inquart to stop the "monstrous"
and "infamous" practice of sterilizing couples in mixed
marriages with Jewish partners. (USHMM 1993, 36)

1944

A German SS unit massacres the inhabitants of Oradour-sur
Glane (Haute Vienne Department), France, in reprisal for
resistance attacks and the disappearance of a German
officer. The men are taken to several barns, where they are
machine-gunned and then burned. The women and children are
burned alive in the town's locked church. Among the 642
inhabitants killed, are 252 children, eighteen Spanish
republican refugees, and several Jews; five men and one
woman escape. (USHMM 1994, 45)
