The Fascist government of northern Italy (RSI) orders all
Jews previously exempted from arrest to be taken to
concentration camps. (USHMM, 1994. Pg. 26)

Executive Order 9417 establishes the War Refugee Board
(WRB), which is mandated to take "all measures within [U.S.]
power to rescue the victims of enemy oppression who are in
imminent danger of death" and to provide "relief and
assistance consistent with the successful prosecution of the
war." President Roosevelt instructs the Departments of
State, Treasury, and War to execute the plans, programs, and
measures formulated by the WRB and to supply the WRB with
information and assistance. The WRB is also empowered to
accept the services or contributions of private persons and
organizations. John Pehle is appointed executive director of
the WRB. (Ibid.)

Seventy-seven homosexual prisoners are among a transport of
one thousand prisoners to the Dora concentration camp, a
satellite camp of Buchenwald. Several homosexual prisoners
are later transferred to Ellrich and Harzungen subcamps.  (Ibid.)
