January 4

1943

Members of the underground Jewish Fighting Organization (in
Polish, Zydowska Organizacja Bojowa, or ZOB) in Poland
undertake armed resistance against a German occupation
(Aktion) in the ghetto of Czestochowa. Two hundred fifty-one
Jews are killed, and others are deported. (USHMM, 1993. Pg. 19)

The mayors of the Italian cities of Florence and Padua are
deposed by Mussolini's Fascist Party because of their
deliberate efforts to delay carrying out measures against Jews. (Ibid.)

1944

At a conference held at the Fuehrer's headquarters to
determine the labor requirements of the Reich to be
fulfilled from occupied countries, Albert Speer (Minister of
Armaments and War Production), Fritz Sauckel
(Plenipotentiary for Labor Allocation), Reichsfuehrer SS
Heinrich Himmler (Minister of Interior), and Field Marshal
Wilhelm Keitel determine that four million conscripted
laborers are needed to support the German war effort. Of
this total, France is expected to provide one million men
between February 1 and December 31, 1944. (USHMM, 1994. Pg. 24)

The Italian Social Republic, or Salo Republic (RSI), the
Fascist government of northern Italy, prohibits Jews from
owning stock or land and also orders the seizure of all
Jewish wealth. (Ibid.)

The Central Office for Reich Security
(Reichssicherheitshauptamt, RSHA) agrees to the release of
five Danish Jews of mixed descent arrested in autumn 1943,
as part of a November 1943 agreement between Adolf Eichmann
and the Danish government. (Ibid.)

During a conference with Adolf Hitler, at which Wilhelm
Keitel was present, it is determined that 4,000,000 new
workers should be obtained from the occupied territories.  (NCA II, 535)
