1943

In Warsaw, amid the rubble of the ghetto, the Germans
execute more than five hundred Polish men and women
dragged from Pawiak prison; their bodies are dumped in a
pile and buried. (USHMM 1993, 35)

1944

The seventy-fifth deportation convoy leaves Drancy with
one thousand Jews. It arrives in Auschwitz on June 2, at
which time 239 men and 134 women are registered for labor
service, and 627 are gassed. (USHMM 1994, 44)

1961

Hansi Brand, during testimony on the 59th day of the trial of Adolf
Eichmann, stated that she had heard Eichmann say that he would blow up
the Auschwitz gas chambers if her husband (to whom Eichmann had
earlier offered to sell one million Jews) returned to Hungary. (TAE,
1056)
