1944

Arthur Greiser,  Gauleiter and governor of the Wartheland,
and Reichsfuehrer SS Heinrich Himmler agree that the Lodz
ghetto is to be reduced in size and that it will not be
reorganized as a concentration camp. (USHMM, 1994. Pg. 28)

Reich Marshal Hermann Goering requests concentration camp
labor to build underground aircraft facilities. (Ibid.)

Heinrich Himmler orders Chelmno to be reopened as an
extermination camp; it once again serves as a killing center
from May to August 1944 during the liquidation of the Lodz
ghetto. (Ibid., 29)

Hermann Goering asks Heinrich Himmler to provide slave
laborers from the concentration camps for employment in the
air armament industry. (1584-I-PS) (NCA II, 444-45) (see March 9)
