February 10


Goering, as Prussian Minister President, signed a further
basic law on the Prussian Secret State Police. Article 7 of
this law provided:

     "Orders in matters of the Secret State Police are not
     subject to the review of the administrative courts."
Thus it was made quite clear by Goering's own law that those
imprisoned in concentration camps without trial of any kind
were to have no recourse to any court. (Nazi Conspiracy and
Aggression, Volume II, 421)


"The Evangelical Church of Thuringia forbade its own baptized Jews access 
to its temples." (Friedlaender, 327)


Mid-level State Department officials instruct the American
legation in Bern not to accept reports for transmission to
"private persons" in the United States "unless such action
is advisable because of extraordinary circumstances." The
official cable, explaining that "such private messages
circumvent neutral countries' censorship," comes after the
Bern legation had forwarded reports, via the State
Department, from Gerhart Riegner to American-Jewish leaders
concerning the mass murder of European Jews. (USHMM, 1993.
Pg. 23)


The sixty-eighth convoy, with fifteen hundred Jews, leaves
Drancy for Auschwitz, arriving there on February 13; 1,229
are gassed on arrival. Twenty-four women and eighteen men do
survive the war. (See February 3.) (USHMM, 1994. Pg. 28)

A transport of 1,015 Jews from Westerbork transit camp in
the Netherlands arrives in Auschwitz-Birkenau; eight hundred
Jews are gassed while 142 men and seventy-three women
survive selection on the ramp and are assigned to forced
labor. (Ibid.)
