November 8


Martin Bormann, acting on orders of Hitler, instructed
Goering to proceed to the "final settlement of the Jewish
question" in Germany. (1816-PS) (NCA II, 901)


In Borisov (Byelorussia) a banquet was held "...for about two hundred 
German and native police ...The occasion was a planned action against the 
ghetto.  ...On the next day, eight thousand Jews were shot. ...the 
clothing of the dead from the grave site [was delivered] to ... a 
welfare organization." (Hillberg, Perpetrators, 91)


The deportation of Jews from Budapest resumes. (USHMM, 1994,
p. 66)

Jews of all ages leave the Budapest region on forced marches
toward the Hegyshalom border station with Austria, located
150 miles to the west. The victims are forced to cover about
eighteen miles daily, and a great many succumb along the
route. (Ibid.)
