October 10

1941

Police Battalions 314 and 45 cooperate in the murder of 7,000 to 8,000 
Jews in Dnepropetrovsk. The action took four days to complete. (Browning, 18)

1943

A "day of intercession" on behalf of European Jews is
proclaimed by an estimated six thousand Protestant churches
in the United States. (USHMM, 1993, p. 48)

Copenhagen police chief Einar Mellerup is arrested for
declaring that the Danish police disassociate themselves
completely from the persecution of the Jews. (Ibid.)

1944

The U.S. State Department issues a warning to the Germans
not to carry out their "plans for the extermination of tens
of thousands of innocent persons of Polish and other United
Nations nationalities as well as Jewish deportees from areas
under German control who are now held in concentration
camps, particularly those at Brzezinka (Birkenau) and
Oswiecim (Auschwitz)." The British government echoes this
statement. (USHMM, 1994, p. 63)
