Pope Eugene IV issues Papal Bull "Dudum ad nostram
audientiam," which forbids Jews to live with Christians or
fill public functions. (Wilensky, p.327)

The Germans begin the deportation of 8,000-9,500 Jewish men
from Vilna to forced-labor camps in Estonia. (USHMM 1993, 40)

1944

About 980 Jewish refugees en route to Oswego from Italy
arrive at Hoboken, New Jersey, aboard the SS Harry Gibbons.
Their journey included a stay of five days in Naples harbor
and an Atlantic crossing lasting seventeen days. After a two-
day train ride to Oswego, New York, they are quarantined
behind six-foot-high chain-link and barbed-wire fences. (See
June 9). (USHMM 1994, 54)

Anne Frank and her family are denounced and arrested in
their Amsterdam hiding place. They are initially deported to
Westerbork, arriving in Auschwitz on September 5, together
with 1,011 other Jewish prisoners. In October, Anne and her
sister are moved to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.  (Ibid.)
