1944

Out of eleven hundred prisoners at Bergen-Belsen with valid
entry certificates for Palestine, 221 Jews are allowed to
leave the camp. After their luggage is weighed and
inspected and they are given medical examinations, the
prisoners travel on a regular passinger train through
Germany, arriving in Vienna on the morning of July 1. They
are joined in Vienna by sixty-one former prisoners from the
internment and exchange camp at Vittel (France). The Vittel
prisoners are vaccinated and their yellow stars are
removed. On July 6 all continue their journey to Istanbul
via Budapest, Belgrade, and Sofia. They arrive in Haifa at
5 P.M. on July 10. (USHMM 1994, 47-8)

A transport of 2,502 Hungarian Jews arrives at Stutthof
concentration camp from Auschwitz. (USHMM 1994, 48)
