October 24

1940

Jewish businesses in Occupied France were "Aryanized" by the Nazis.
That is, they were stolen from their owners, through threats and
force. (Black, ch. 11)

1941

After rounding up and holding over 20,000 persons in Odessa on the
previous day, 16,000 of them were led on a forced march to Dalnik.
There they were bound together in groups of 40 to 50 people, thrown
into an anti-tank ditch, and shot dead. When the shootings proved too
slow, the remaining victims were crowded into four large warehouses
which had holes in the walls. Machine guns fired through the holes
and in this manner, mass murder was committed in one warehouse after
another. (Carmelly, 80-81)

1944

A transport of three hundred prisoners, a third of whom are
Jewish, is sent from the Bolzano-Gries transit camp to
Auschwitz-Birkenau, arriving there on October 28. (USHMM, 1994, p. 64)
