March 4

1943

The Bulgarian government, while trying to protect Bulgarian
Jews, deports approximately four thousand Jews from the
occupied Greek province of Thrace to Poland, via assembly
camps established in southwestern Bulgaria. (See February
22nd. USHMM 1993, p. 26)

1944

The first group of 750 men is transferred from the Lodz
ghetto to forced-labour camps for Jews (Judenlager) at HASAG
(Hugo Schneider AG) armaments factories in Czestochowa in
central occupied Poland. This is the first instance when
Jews from the Lodz ghetto are sent as conscript prisoner
labor to the General Government rather than to the Reich or
incorporated territories. The Judenlager HASAG will be
liquidated on January 16, 1945, a few days before the Red
Army enters Czestochowa. At that time those prisoners still
able to work are deported to Buchenwald, Gross Rosen, and
Ravensbruck concentration camps. (USHMM 1994, 30-31)
