June 6

1939

Martin Bormann issues a circular which excluds Christian
Scientists from Party membership (838-PS). (NCA II, 899)

1941

Martin Bormann was among the most relentless members of the
conspirators in the persecution of the churches. In a secret
order of 6 June 1941 he stated bluntly the aim of the
conspirators to destroy Christianity altogether:

     "National Socialist and Christian concepts are
     irreconcilable ***. No human being would know anything
     of Christianity if it had not been drilled into him in
     his childhood by pastors. The so-called dear God in no
     wise gives knowledge of his existence to young people
     in advance, but in an astonishing manner in spite of
     his omnipotence leaves this to the efforts of the
     pastors. If, therefore, in the future our youth learns
     nothing more of this Christianity whose doctrines are
     far below ours, Christianity will disappear by itself."
     (D-75; see also 098-PS) (NCA II, 899)

The first transport of Czechoslovakians arrive at 
Auschwitz from Brno. Sixty people were sent by the
Gestapo and assigned serial numbers 17045 - 17104. (Czech
et al, p. 133)
 
1944

Eighteen hundred Jews on the island of Corfu are rounded
up and held in that island's fortress. More than fifteen
hundred of them are deported on June 14 to the Ionian
island of Leukas (Leucadia) and then to the seaport and
railroad terminus city of Piraeus. The deportees are
transported from there to Auschwitz, arriving on June 20.
(USHMM 1994, 45)

`Einsatzstab' Rosenberg sends special units to Norway and
Denmark to seize Jewish property and confiscate art
objects. A similar unit was sent to Hungary on June 1.
