September 29

1944

In the Marzabotto plateau region in Emilia-Romagna (about twenty
kilometers south of Bologna), 1,830 civilians are shot by
units of the German Sixteenth SS Panzer Grenadier Division,
commanded by Austrian SS officer Walter Reder. The victims
include women and children killed for allegedly harboring
Italian partisans. The killings are in reprisal for the
activities of the Stella Rossa (Red Star) partisan unit, led
by Mario Musolesi (known as Lupo). The partisans supposedly
killed 1,311 German soldiers, wounded 717, and destroyed 62
German vehicles and 50 pieces of rolling stock in 72 combat
confrontations. (USHMM, 1994, p. 61)

Two thousand four hundred ninety-nine Jews deported from
Theresienstadt arrive at Auschwitz. (Ibid.)
