September 27

1938

The 5th Ordinance supplementing the "Reich Citizenship Law" deprives
all Jewish lawyers of their right to practice law as of November 30,
1938, and permits further activity only for Jews, as so-called "Jewish
advisors" [Konsulenten]. (Ruerup, 112)

1943

German forces occupy the Greek island of Corfu and,
concluding that deportation is impractical, insitute harsh
measures against the resident two thousand Jews. (USHMM 1993, 45)

1944

Von Thadden, an official in the German Foreign Office,
reports having received the new Slovak minister in Berlin,
who, after assuring his host of his devotion to the German
cause, noted that "the Jewish problem" in Slovakia required
a radical solution. The minister concered that anti-Jewish
laws had in the past been administered in a lax manner
because the government hoped to pacify Germany's enemies.
Since the new Slovak government is solidly behind the German
cause, he expressed his belief that the government would now
resolutely address the Jewish question. (USHMM, 1994, p. 61)
