April 3


American aircraft bomb Budapest; Eichmann and Peter Hain,
head of the Hungarian security police, demand that the
Jewish Council provide five hundred apartments for Christian
victims of the raid. SS Brigadier General Veesenmayer
observes that on the occasion of the next Allied raid on
Budapest, he "would not object" to having ten Jews shot for
every Hungarian killed, cautioning, however that "once
initiated, such an action will have to be carried out in a
resolute fashion." (USHMM 1994, 36)

The SS Milca, a ship registered in Bulgaria, arrives in
Turkey from Constanza, Romania, with 239 "illegal" refugees
after protracted negotiations with the Turkish government by
Ira Hirschmann, representative of the War Refugee Board. The
refugees are transferred to Palestine within a few days.
