I’ve been getting a sense that the Germans fight better in the summer than winter. I wonder what this coming summer will bring?

January 1, 1943:


"Members of the Greenspan partisan group assemble in Poland's Parczew Forest."


"Crematorium IV at Auschwitz-Birkenau could burn almost 1500 bodies a day."


"Duped into believing that they were headed for "resettlement" in the East, Jews bound for Auschwitz carried suitcases containing their most precious belongings.
While the prisoners were often sent to their deaths upon arrival, their possessions were guarded, sorted, and stored before being shipped to Germany."


"These Jews are being moved to the Grodno Ghetto in Belorussia.
The ghetto was established shortly after the German invasion of Russia.
In November 1941 25,000 Jews from Grodno and the surrounding area were forced into the ghetto.
It was liquidated in January 1943, when the resident Jews were deported to their deaths at Treblinka.
Even before the German occupation of this section of the Soviet Union, civilian antisemites had attacked Jews there."
