October 4

1933

The "Law of Editors" excludes all Jewish editors. (Ruerup, 111)

1943

In an address to SS officers in Posen, Himmler openly
acknowledges the mass murder of Jews and says, "This is a
page of glory in our history." He also declares that he has
no interest in the fate of the Russians, Czechs, and other
conquered peoples: "Whether 10,000 Russian females drop from
exhaustion while building an anti-tank ditch interests me
only insofar as the anti-tank ditch gets finished." (USHMM,
1993, p. 47)(See http://www.nizkor.org/hweb/people/h/himmler-
heinrich/posen/oct-04-43/ to hear Himmler speak.)

1944

Banjica concentration camp in Yugoslavia is closed by the
Germans. (USHMM, 1994, p. 62)
