The Chindits, an unconventional guerrilla-style force under
British Brigadier General Orde Wingate, attack Japanese
forces in Burma. Their tactics become a model for Allied
operations behind enemy lines. (Wingate had experimented
with unusual tactics in training the Haganah, the Jewish
self-defense force in Palestine, during the 1936-1939 Arab
revolt.) (USHMM, 1993. Pg. 22)


A second group of Libyan Jews from Bengazi are transferred
by the Germans from two Italian internment camps in Anzio
province via Florence to the Fossoli transit camp. (See
January 10.) (USHMM, 1994. Pg. 28)

SS Obersturmbannfuehrer (SS Lieutenant Colonel) Karl Rahm is

and is stationed there until the war ends. After the war he
is tried by an extraordinary tribunal at Litomerice,
Czechoslovakia, and sentenced to death; he is executed in
April 1947. (Ibid.)
