By 1944 several million Jews had been deported to the ghettos and extermination camps in the east. Deportation began with the Jews of Stettin and Schneidemuehl in 1940; the last country to lose its Jews was Hungary. This volume concentrates on the deportation of Jews from these areas but includes documentation on the deportation from other cities in Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Norway, Slovakia, Croatia, Rumania, and-to a much lesser degree-Bulgaria. There is some documentation of the deportation of Jews from the Palatinate to Vichy France. Conditions under which deportations were carried out-herding Jews into cattle cars, identifying Jews through compulsory wearing of the Star of David-all are parts of this symphony of death. Contains 43 documents of source materials, carefully chosen from the thousands preserved at the U.S. National Archives. A detailed table of contents lists and provides the source for each document.
