All Jewish passports are stamped with a "J." (Ruerup, 112)


Police Battalion 304 reports shooting 305 Jews. (Browning, 17)


Hermann Graebe, manager of the Solingen firm of Josef Jung
in Sdolbunow, Ukraine, witnesses a mass execution at Dubno,
Ukraine. Graebe's affidavit, 2992-PS, describes this action,
in which over a thousand Jews were stripped naked, marched
into a burial pit, forced to lie down on top of earlier
victims, some of whom were still moving, and then shot by SS
personnel. (NCA II, 268-9)

Four hundred Orthodox rabbis gather in Washington to urge
creation of a U.S. agency to rescue European Jews. They meet
with Vice President Henry Wallace at the Capitol bit fail to
get an appointment with Roosevelt. (USHMM, 1993, p. 47)


The Central Office for Reich Security (RSHA) verbally
informs the German Foreign Ministry that the transfer of 318
Hungarian Jews to Switzerland is the result of an agreement
reached by the SS in return for strategic war materials.
There is no written record of the oral agreement, which
involved Himmler and Eichmann. For that reason the Foreign
Office can be brief only verbally. In view of the rupture of
diplomatic relations with Turkey and the surrender of
Bulgaria, further negotiations leading to such transactions
are not likely. (USHMM, 1994, p. 62)

The British Colonial Office agrees to allow 10,300 Jews to
enter Palestine at the rate of fifteen hundred each month.
This program replaces the offer made to the Jewish Agency
the previous year, under which all Jews reaching Turkey
would be allowed to enter Palestine. (Ibid.)
