Footnotes

FEBRUARY/MARCH - 1942

1. After Wannsee, the proposed extermination of the Jews was to be carried out by the civil and security authorities. At a conference held in Lublin on 16 March, 1942, between representatives of the Government-General (Frank), the HSSPF, Frederick W. Kruger, and Globocnik`s Office, a final protocol was worked out for the resettlements to Belzec: Jewish labour, those capable and not capable of work; Incapable workes to be sent to Belzec; Capable workers to be held in work camps acco rding to their professions; The town of Piaski to be cleared of Jews and made accessible for incoming Jews from the Reich; Arrangements will be made to receive and embark 4-5 transports daily of 1, 000 Jews each transport for resettlement to Belzec. 27, 800 (16 transports, Lublin), and 16,700 (11 transports, Lvov), deported in March to Belzec. See Reitlinger, `The Final Solution`, London 1958, 268. See also YA, 44-45.

2. County of Zamosc (Lublin). Map 107. Jews in first deportation to Belzec.

3. County of Rawa Ruska (Galicia)... YA. See Belzec-Oberhauser, YV. TR 10/517, 7-9. See also MG, Map 111, and TB, table 7.

4. County of Rawa Ruska (Galicia). Some of the first victims came from this town and were engaged in building the camp.

5. In the County of Zamosc (Lublin). The nearest town to Belzec (5km).

6. County of Bilgoraj (Lublin). MG Map 111.

7. County of Drohobycz (Galicia). MG Map 111. See also YA, table 4. (2000); YVA O-7/32 TB, table 4 (1000) , 24-25. March, 42. See also YVA LL/2, 3/42, 3000 Jews deported to Belzec.

8. MG, Map 107.

9. MG, Map 109. Exactly why the Nazis decided to pick on Bad Kissingen for resettlement is not clear, but probably a further sweep to collect up those Jews living in remote places who had previously avoided arrest. Initially, after their long journey from Germany to the East, they probably spent a very short time in one of the ghetto transit camps (Izbica/Piaski). This transport presents us with a problem when determining `numbers` as there were also resettlement transports recorded from both Izbica and Piaski, whether the Bad Kissinger Jews were included in this number, it is difficult to say. This problem was to re-occur throughout my research and in many cases we cannot be at all sure that these findings are very accurate for this reason. The following are locations (Nos. in brackets) from where Jews were removed for resettlement :and deported along with other local transports on 24. 3. 42 - Bruchenau (4) Bad Kissingen (23) Bad Neustadt (3) Bad Neustadt (3) Geroda (6) Hochheim (9) Kleinbardorf (3) Kleineibstadt (6) Kleinsteinach (4)Lenndershausen (2) Masssbach (3) Pfaffenhausen (13) Platz (2) Poppenlauer (14) Schondra (6) Steinach (4) Steinach (4)Volkersleir (4).

10. MG, Map 110. 224 Jews from this district deported and joined the main transport on 24. 3. 42

11. MG, Map 109: All deported from Wurzburg 24.3.42 - Acholshausen (2) Allersheim (2) Altenschonbach (5) Estenfeld (4) Gaukonigshofen (25) Geroldshausen (2) Gerolzhofen (19) Giebelstadt (5) Gossmannsdorf (3) Grosslangeheim (2) Hochberg (4) Huttenheim (3) Kitzingen (76) Laudenbach (11) Lulsfeld (3) Mainbernheim (2) Marktbreit (23) Nordheim (4) Oberalterheim (4) Obernbreit (5) Prichsenstadt (7) Reichenberg (12) Rimpar (6) Schwanfeld (8) Theilheim (31) Thungen (3) Veitshochheim (4) Wiesenbronn (3) Zeeilitzheim.

12. County of Hrubieszow (Lublin). MG, Map 107.

13. County of Krasnystaw (Lublin). MG, Map 111. See also YA (2200); YVA O-7/32, 17. 3. 42 Transport - Many Theresienstadt Jews). Second transport 24. 3. 42 contained Jews from Germany, see above, TB table 7 (2200, 24. 3. 42, 2 transports from Czechoslovakia.

14. County of Pulawy (Lublin). MG, Map 111. See also YVA O-7/32, TB, 30. 3. 42, table 9.

15. County of Lublin (Lublin). MG, Map 111. Lublin bore the brunt of the first resettlement transports to Belzec and nearly all the Jewish population of over 30,000 were transported to Belzec over a 2 week period. MG shows two transports dated 17 (1,600) and 18 - 24 March (10,000). Others quote differing numbers in March and April, but the overall Jewish population of Lublin was surely exterminated in Belzec. See also YA (17/3 - 14/4, 30,000); YVA (16 transports from Lublin to Belzec); TB, table 1, (17/3 - 20/4 30,000). At a press conference on 9.7. 1942, Stanislaw Mikojaczyk, the then Deputy Prime Minister in-Exile, stated: `We learned that part of the Jews from the Lublin District - 26,000 of them - were directed during the night of 23-24 March, 1942, to camps at Belzec and Trawniki`.

APRIL 1942

30. The opening phase (17 March - 14 April 1942). It was a time of fine-tuning the reception of these transports in the camp. So many corpses were now being buried in the mass graves that problems of disposal was surfacing ( See statement of Strangle in Gitta Sereny, `Into the Darkness` (London 1974), 112. Due to the warm spring weather, bodies were decomposing too quickly, and rising above ground level which caused a health hazard in the vicinity. To combat this, large quantities of lime were shipped into the camp to cover these early mass graves. This was confirmed by the soil sample findings taken during the 1997-9 investigation. Grave No. 14 (identified 1998) measured 90m. x 30m. x 6m. deep. Can you imagine this? We have a further complication with regard to operational dates at Belzec which are in conflict with some assessments and conclusions. The inconsistency surrounds the actual period when Belzec was closed for the re-construction of the second series of gas chambers. Unlike Treblinka, where gassings continued in the first gas chambers at the same time the second, much larger chambers were being built. The first gas chambers were inadequate due to the flimsy air-tight construction. In practice, only one out of the three chambers in Belzec with a capacity of 100, was ever fully operational. The facts, as we know them, arrive from and surround the statements made by Josef Oberhauser on 26.2.60, 20.4.60, where he states Wirth left Belzec for Berlin directly after the February experimental gassings and returned with an increase in staff in time for the gassings commencing 17 March 1942. In the latter statement (12.12.62), Oberhauser refers to the suspension and new construction to late June, early July (Arad 72-3). Christopher Browning (`Perspectives of the Holocaust` (Beyond Warsaw and Lodz: The Holocaust in Poland), Oxford 1995, 88/9), comes to the conclusion, and I am inclined to agree with him, that Oberhauser`s earlier statements are more reliable. Oberhauser, who finally left Belzec with Wirth on 1 August 1942, was, in my view, shifting the balance of destruction as a defensive lie for the period he was most active in the camp.

JUNE 1942

64. With he resettlement programme in June, 1942, saw the Jewish manpower problems arising. On 22 June, 1942, it was pointed out by the Director of Labour of the Generalgovernement, Max Frauendorfer, that with the expulsion of Jewish labour from the ghettos (resettlement) was causing economic difficulties. Frauendorfer pointed out that about 100, 000 skilled workers were employed in the armaments industry, 800, 000 workers were sent to Germany, and a further 100, 000 were employed by the military. He pointed out that he was solely dependant on Jewish labour, therefore Jewish skilled labour should be utilised and not be fodder for the SS resettlement programme. See YA, 46. While Globocnik was pulling one way to exterminate the Jews, the military were pulling the other way to retain Jewish skilled labour. A sort of compromise was to appear in September/October, 1942.

JULY 1942

73. A new urgency had now taken place. Himmlers order of 19 July, 1942, demanded that the Generalgovernement was to be cleared of Jews by 31 December, 1942 (Nuremberg Document, N0-5574). As a consequence, in the second part of July transports were being stepped up. 48,400, Jews deported to Belzec in July. Despite objections from the armaments industry, the deportations continued apace and would continue at ever increasing numbers until Galicia was free of Jews. Also in July, 1V B 4 were experiencing severe transport problems for their operations which resulted in a flurry of exchanges between the Ministry of Transport and Himmler`s Office. The net result, in Himmler`s favour, was that further transports were made available for the continued resettlement: 5, 000 Jews were now leaving daily from Warsaw to Treblinka, and 5, 000 Jews were leaving, 2 times a week from Przemysl to Belzec.

SEPTEMBER 1942

152. At a conference held in the offices of the Ministry of Transport in Berlin, 26 and 28 September, 1942, between 1V B 4 Gestapo and `Gedob` (Director General of the Eastern Railroad), it was decided to push ahead with the expulsion of a further 600, 000 Jews from the Generalgovernement and a further 200, 000 Jews from Rumania to Belzec. Although the Rumanian Jews did not materialise due to internal differences, the way was open with extra transports for the others: 2 transports daily from Warsaw-Treblinka, 1 transport daily Radom-Treblinka, I transport daily Krakow-Belzec, I transport daily Lvov-Belzec. The Lublin-Chelm rail-line ( for Sobibor) which was out of operation and being repaired was due to re-open in November, 1942, when further transports would continue: 1 transport daily Radom-Sobibor, 1 transport daily Lublin district-Belzec, I transport daily Lublin-Sobibor. Nuremberg Document, N0, PS-3688. See also YA, 52-53. Also in September the Jewish labour problem re-surfaced again. This time, the Commander of the Military District of the Generalgovernement, General Kurt von Gienanth approached the General Staff pointing out the difficulties. In October, Himmler issued a further directive which was to ease the problem: Skilled Jews were to be collected into concentration camps, but should be replaced at the earliest opportunity by Polish workers. Himmler covered two further points: (1) Ruthless steps would be taken against any SS Fuhrer who utilised Jewish labour for personal gain, and (2), the Fuhrer has emphasised that all Jews are to disappear.

DECEMBER 1942

331. Deportations to Belzec were discontinued in mid-December, 1942, but already over two thirds of the projected resettlement had been accomplished. The reason for the discontinuation of the Belzec transports was mainly due to the breakdown in the transport system which caused the suspension of all transports to `AR`camps between 15 December, 1942, and 15 January 1943. Despite urgent pleas from the HSSPF F. W. Kruger to Himmler, and his intervention with the rail authorities, it was of no avail. After 15 January, 1943, resettlement transports continued, but Belzec remained closed and de-commissioning commenced. See Hilberg, `The Destruction`, vol. 2, 492.
