1942

[Minsk] Byelorussian Generalkommissar Kube complains to Reichkommissar for
Ostland, Gauleiter Lohse, that the Army Rear Zone Command
"liquidated 10,000 Jews" without contacting him, and explains that
his unit had planned to eliminate these Jews. He notes that 10,000
Jews still remain in Baranowitschi, but states that 9,000 "will be
liquidated next month."

1944

The crematorium at Ebensee concentration camp, a Mauthausen
subcamp, begins operation. (USHMM 1994, 52)

The seventy-seventh convoy leaves Drancy for Auschwitz with
approximately thirteen hundred Jewish deportees; it is the
last transport from Drancy to Auschwitz. On arrival on
August 3, 574 are registered for labor, and 726 are gassed.
Among those killed are more than three hundred children
under age eighteen from group homes in France. (See June 30)
(Ibid.)

The twenty-sixth transport leaves the transit camp of
Malines in Belgium for Auschwitz with 563 deportees. (Ibid.)

Fossoli transit camp in Italy is closed. (Ibid.)

Monsignor Roncalli (later Pope John XXIII) and Ira
Hirschmann (from the War Refugee Board) develop a plan to
use baptismal certificates to save some Hungarian Jews,
since the Hungarian decree of July 18 stipulated that
converted Jews would not be deported. (Ibid.)
