Urban VIII issues Papal Bull "Cum allias piae," which

The gas chambers at Belzec, an Aktion Reinhard death camp,

others are deported to Auschwitz. (USHMM 1993, p. 27)

deportation of Jews of prewar Bulgaria, including non-

Angelo Roncalli, later Pope John XXIII. (Ibid.)


Ninety-nine prisoners break out of Koldichevo camp, located
