1943

Himmler receives a report on the quantities of "used
clothing" collected from Auschwitz and Majdanek -- including
twenty-two thousand pairs of children's shoes -- which are
to be shipped to the Reich for reutilization by ethnic
German settlers and in the German economy. (USHMM, 1993. Pg. 22)

An order from Eichmann's Jewish department of the RSHA
states that all members of the ancient Greek-Jewish
community of Salonika are to wear the yellow badge and to
mark their homes and businesses as Jewish. The "Baron
Hirsch" section of Salonika, named for the Jewish
philanthropist, is opened as a transit camp and assembly
center. (Ibid.)

1944

The Polish Roma (Gypsy) prisoner Weronika Walansewicz
(registered as Gypsy prisoner Z 9611) escapes from Auschwitz-
Birkenau; she had been deported from Bialystok to Auschwitz
on November 28, 1943. (USHMM, 1994. Pg. 28)
