1944

The rescue activities of diverse Jewish groups in Istanbul,
including the Rescue Committee of the Jewish Agency for
Palestine, are centralized through the creation of a Rescue
Council. This council will work with the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee and the War Refugee Board in an
attempt to coordinate rescue efforts before approaches are
made to the Turkish government. (USHMM 1994, 49)

German Foreign Minister von Ribbentrop informs SS Brigadier
Gerneral Veesenmayer of Hitler's decision regarding the
Hungarian government's collaboration with the Swedes, Swiss,
and Americans: With respect to the humanitarian initiatives,
the Hungarian government may release small groups of Jews
provided that the Hungarian regent Horthy agrees to the
large-scale resumption of deportation of Hungarian Jews.  (Ibid.)
