1944

Referring to a Swedish diplomatic note concerning a request
for the immigration of Dutch-Jewish children to Sweden, an
internal memorandum to German Foreign Minister von
Ribbentrop states that the camp at Westerbork has in the
meantime been liquidated. Further, the Jewish inmates have
been sent to the east for "labor service," their present
cannot be determined, or they are in the Theresienstadt
ghetto. In addition, the emigration of Jews from ghettos has
been expressly forbidden by Himmler, and the Central Office
for Reich Security (RSHA) would have very serious doubts
about the emigration of Dutch Jews for security and
counterintelligence reasons. It is therefore proposed that
no response be made to the Swedish note. (USHMM, 1994, p.  63)
