Minsk: An SS Unterscharfuehrer's progress report includes a report of the
preparations made for the arrival of a transport of Jews, and
notes that the "excavation of pits were begun."

1943

Germany and Hungary reach agreement to permit the transfer
of Hungarian-Jewish forced-labor companies -- a total of ten
thousand prisoners -- to the copper mines at Bor in Serbia.
By September 1944 the number swindles to five thousand. As
the Red Army approaches, the remaining prisoners are taken
on a death march toward Germany, and hundreds are shot to
death along the way. (USHMM 1993, 38)

The British Colonial Secretary rules that any Jewish refugee
reaching a neutral country can receive immigration papers
for Palestine. However, this policy is never made known to
neutral countries that might be affected. (Ibid.)
