1933

"...the leading Protestant theologian and biblical scholar,
Gerhard Kittel, said, during a public lecture in Tuebingen,
that the Jews, as a well-known matter of common sense, are a
racially constituted, alien body within Germany. He
explicitly considers extermination as a potential
"solution," but rejects it as impractical, and settles on
"guest status" (Fremdlingschaft), namely the separation of
the Jews from their host peoples. (Goldhagen, 126)

1943

The final liquidation of the Lvov ghetto begins. There is
armed resistance, and three thousand Jews are killed.
Seven thousand are sent to the forced-labor and
concentration camp of Janowska on the edge of the city.  (USHMM 1993, 35)
