August 18
     
1935

Hjalmar Schacht, President of the Reichsbank, expressed his
feelings towards the Jews while speaking at the German
Eastern Fair: "The Jew must realize that their influence is
gone for all times. We desire to keep our people and our
culture pure and distinctive, just as the Jews have always
demanded this of themselves since the time of the prophet
Ezra. But the solution of these problems must be brought
about under state leadership, and cannot be left to
unregulated individual actions, which mean a disturbing
influence on the national economy ** *" (EC-433). (NCA II, 738-9)

1943

Jewish prisoners of Sonderkommando 1005, under SS Colonel
Blobel, begin exhuming and cremating corpses at Babi Yar to
obliterate traces of German crimes. (USHMM 1993, 41)
