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."

"A Putsch planned by some German generals at Stalingrad, Russia, and intended to overthrow Hitler never comes off. Leading German opponents of Hitler and the Nazis--mostly conservative political opponents--conspire to overthrow Hitler's Reich. They feel that Hitler has overreached himself, and that the war has developed into a dangerous two-front endeavor. Despite their opposition to Hitler, his major German antagonists are antisemitic and still want the Jews to disappear. They conclude that the Jews are a 'calamitous influence...on the nation,' and that the Jews are 'a danger to the German nation.'

What is your source here, the CPUSA?
