There are several curious features to be noted here:
The compilation is splitted in two parts - according to the
control Germany could exert in the respective countries.
A.: Those under direct control, as in Germany proper or
    annexed and conquered countries.
B:  Enemy countries, neutrals or allies.
The compilation largely reflects a split between the larger
zone of German influence and the remoter parts of Europe -
as it was prior to the invasion in USSR. However, the annexed
precise data on Ukraine and Belorussia along with the
data on the Baltic states provide an updated statistic.

I once asked Mr Baron two questions about this statistics -
he never answered. So, I reintroduce them here:

1) What does it mean when _Estland_ [Estonia] is marked
as _judenfrei_ [free[d] of Jews] here? Apparently, the
central German institutions assembled data about the 
sweeping out of Jewish populations in territories under
their occupation, or will Mr Baron provide another 
2) Normally, figures are rounded here, either to hundreds
thousands or ten thousands. But, the figures given for
the Ukraine and Belorussia are precise to the last digit.
Historians interpret this curious feature by the practise
of the SS-statisticians: They subtracted numbers of killed 
Jews, reported by the _Einsatzgruppen_ and other similar
units in the East, from a once given total number, they 
had estimated before, as evidenced by the figure of
5 Mio. in USSR. Therefor the statistics indicates the
beginning of the _Final Solution_, or will Mr Baron provide 
another explication?

I mean, other than his usual, 'does the document really exist, 
who has ever seen it', or 'it has been tampered with anyhow' etc. 
which is rather a sophiticated set of idiotic self-contradictory
