March 7


The Germans organize the first transport of Gypsies from the
easter occupied territories to Birkenau. During the month,
in the first gassing of Gypsies, seventeen hundred Gypsies
from Bialystok -- not registered on arrival -- are killed as
"suspected typhus cases." (USHMM 1993, p. 26)

Forty-five hundred Jews still in Croatia are arrested and
deported to Auschwitz in transports on March 7 and 13.


In Turin (Italy) Jewish hospices with sick and aged patients
are raided by the Germans. After a one-month imprisonment,
the patients are deported via Fossoli to Auschwitz-Birkenau.
(USHMM 1994, 31)

The Italian (RSI) minister of the interior issues another
decree reaffirming the exemption from deportation of Jews
above age seventy and of those with mixed heritage. German
roundups of such individuals continue in violation of the
Italian decree. (Ibid.)

The sixty-ninth deportation convoy departs from Drancy for
Auschwitz with 1,501 prisoners. It arrives in Auschwitz on
March 10; 110 men and eighty women are selected for labor on
arrival, while the remaining 1,311 Jews are gassed. (See
February 10.) (Ibid.)

In Aryan Warsaw thirty-eight Jews hiding in a bunker at 84
Grojecka Street are arrested, together with six Poles who
had built the shelter under the floor of a greenhouse and
supplied the Jews with food. The noted historian Emmanuel
Ringelblum, his wife, and his son are among those arrested.
The Ringelblums are sent to Pawiak prison and executed
several days later. (Ibid.)

Reichsfuehrer SS Heinrich Himmler informs the Security
Police, the Security Service, and the SS Central Office for
Economy and Administration that no prisoners may be released
from Mauthausen concentration camp for the duration of the
war. (Ibid.)

The United Nations War Crimes Commission sets up a
subcommittee to study the probable future defense argument
of accused war criminals that they were following a
superior's orders. (Ibid.)

Gauleiter Arthur Greiser, governor of the Wartheland,
reports to Himmler that the Jewish population of Warthegau,
formerly part of western Poland, has almost completely
disappeared. (See February 14.) (Ibid.)
