June 22

1941

Jews from the Dorohoi district of Romania, having been branded as
communist sympathizers and spies, were arrested and transported in 
cattle cars to concentration camps in Tirgu and Craiova.  (Carmelly,
292)

1944

Concentration camp prisoners from Alderney in the Channel
Islands are deported via Guernsey to Sollstedt (Germany),
arriving there in September. Initially allocated to
Neuengamme concentration camp, they are reassigned in
September to Buchenwald concentration camp. (The Channel
Islands, located in the English Channel off the coast of
Normany, were the only U.K. territory to endure German
occupation during World War II.) (USHMM 1994, 46)
