June 15

1938

During the so-called "June Action," 1,500 Jewish citizens with a
police record, including, for instance, anyone convicted of traffic
violations, are arrested and sent to concentration camps. (Ruerup, 112)

1943

State and Treasury Department officials in Washington meet
to discuss implementation of the World Jewish Congress
proposal for the rescue of Jews in Romania and France, with
State Department officials arguing that large-scale rescue
efforts are unrealistic since there are no areas to which
large numbers of Jews might be evacuated. (See February 13
and April 20) (USHMM 1993, 36)
