March 5


Papal Bull "Sufficere debuerat perfidioe judoerum perfida"
by Gregory IX forbids Jews from employing Jewish servants.
(Wilensky, p. 326)


Seven hundred thirty-two Jews from Westerbork transit camp
arrive at Auschwitz-Birkenau; 477 prisoners are killed on
arrival. (USHMM 1994, 31)

The decision is made to kill Jewish prisoners in the
"Theresienstadt family camp," BIIb, in Auschwitz-Birkenau.
The deportees are given postcards postdated March 25-27 with
the preprinted message "We are healthy and fine," which are
mailed after March 25 to mislead the deportees' families and
the International Red Cross. To continue the deception, the
prisoners are moved into the quarantine compound BIIa in
Auschwitz-Birkenau, where men and women are separated in
different barracks and told that they are to be transferred
to labor camps in the Reich. (Ibid.)
