June 30


All Jewish schools within Germany must permanently close. (Ruerup, 119)


Ernst Kaltenbrunner, Reinhard Heydrich's successor as head
of the Central Office for Reich Security (RHSA), informs
the mayor of Vienna that six transports with about thirty
thousand Hungarian Jews will arrive in Vienna as part of
the "blood for trucks" negotiations between Adolf Eichmann
and Reszoe Kasztner. Kaltenbrunner estimates that about 30
percent of the deportees destined for the special camp at
Strasshof near Vienna can be used for forced labor in
easter Austria, whereas the remaining women and children
are to be kept for a future "special operation." About 75
percent of these Hungarian Jews survive the war. (USHMM
1994, 48)

The seventy-sixth convoy with eleven hundred Jewish
deportees leaves Drancy, reaching Auschwitz on July 4. On
arrival, 398 men and 232 women are registered for labor,
and the remaining deportees are gassed. (Ibid.)

A transport with 2,044 Jews from Athens and Corfu arrives
at Auschwitz-Birkenau; 1,423 are gassed on arrival. On the
same day, a transport also arrives with a thousand Jews
from the Fossoli transit camp, of whom 231 are selected for
labor; the rest are gassed. (Ibid.)
