January 12

1943

Adolf Eichmann, head of department IVB4, the Jewish
department of the Central Office for Reich Security (RSHA),
directs the massive deportation of Jews from Berlin to
Auschwitz and to the "show" ghetto of Terezin
(Theresienstadt) in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.
This operation will continue through March and will involve
fifteen thousand Jews. The noted Berlin rabbi and scholar
Leo Baeck is among the sick, inform, and/or prominent Jews
sent to Terezin during this period. (USHMM, 1993. Pg. 19)

1944

One thousand Jewish prisoners are transferred from Stutthof
concentration camp to Auschwitz-Birkenau; 746 prisoners are
gassed on arrival, and 120 men and 134 women survive the
initial selection. (USHMM, 1994. Pg. 25)
