September 19

1943

The Nazis complete the job of exhuming tens of thousands of corpses
from the ravine at Babi Yar. The work was done by Sonderkommando 1005 in a Nazi
attempt to conceal their murderous activities. The site had been the scene of
the machine-gunning of 33,000 Jews, in 1941, and the murder of thousands of 
Gypsies and Soviet POWs in subsequent months.

1944

Almost ten thousand Danish police are arrested by the
Germans as the Danish police force is disbanded in a German
attempt to eliminate possible centers of resistance.
Approximately two thousand are deported to Buchenwald
concentration camp that evening, while the rest are disarmed
and released on parole. (USHMM 1994, 60)

Sabac concentration camp in Serbia is evacuated. Some
prisoners are transferred to Banjica concentration camp, and
others are released. (Ibid.)
