"Deliver those who are being taken away to death, and those who are staggering to slaughter, O hold them back!
If you say, 'See, we did not know this'
Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does He not know it who keeps your soul?
And will He not render to man according to his work?"

1939 October – August 1941: In Germany – by Aktion T4 – 70,273 people terminated, including many children.
the war proceeds Germany becomes increasingly dependent on foreign labour to keep its economy running. This includes around 1.5 million prisoners of war and, by 1943-4, some 5 million civilians, most of whom had been forced to work in Germany and many of whom were treated as slaves. Roughly a quarter of the workforce in Germany in the later war years is made up of foreigners. "The process starts in 1939-40 when many Poles were brought to Germany as farm labourers. Later, in eastern Europe, men, women and many young children were simply rounded up and sent wherever it suited Germany. In Vichy France men were conscripted to do their national service in the German labour force. "People of German descent (known to the Nazis as Volksdeutsche) are living in many places in eastern Europe; one of he most bizarre aspects of Nazi rule is the plan to reassimilate them with the Volk. Hundreds of thousands of people were to be brought back into the Reich. Many were transported from their homes in the Baltic States or western USSR, supposedly to be resettled in captured territories that were to become part of Germany proper. Most ended up among the millions of homeless displaced persons in central Europe after the war. "Perhaps the most heartless aspect of this particular policy was the Lebensborn programme. As part of this plan to increase the German race, SS representatives toured occupied territories identifying 'racially worth­while' children and taking them for forced adoption in Germany.
Some 300,000 children are believed to have been abducted from their families in this way; 80 per cent of them never returned."
Kidnapping of
Polish children!

With these visas, and a complex mechanism of aid from other consuls, companies, and individuals, up to 10,000 Jews are thought to have been saved from WWII Europe.
He is hailed as "a man who defied the Japanese government and risked his career to save the lives of thousands of Jewish people."

Poland – CHAIM A KAPLAN in his Warsaw Diary writes with insight –
  "The gigantic catastrophe which has descended on Polish Jewry has no parallel, even in the darkest periods of Jewish history. First, in the depth of hatred. This is not just hatred whose source is in a party platform, and which was invented for political purposes. It is a hatred of emotion, whose source is some psychopathic malady. In its outward manifestations it functions as physiological hatred, which imagines the object of hatred to be unclean in body, a leper who has no place within the camp.
   The [German] masses have absorbed this sort of qualitative hatred. ...They have absorbed their masters' teachings in a concrete, corporeal form. The Jew is filthy; the Jew is a swindler and an evildoer; the Jew is the enemy of Germany, who undermines its existence; the Jew was the prime mover in the Versailles Treaty, which reduced Germany to nothing; the Jew is Satan, who sows dissension between one nation and another, arousing them to bloodshed in order to profit from their destruction. These are easily understood concepts whose effect in day-to-day life can be felt immediately."
9: German troops occupy Denmark and Norway.
The Danish Protectorate under the Nazis is allowed to direct its internal affairs. It keeps a certain amount of latitude and rejects the Nazi demand that it introduce the death penalty and that it segregate Jews.

"...Jewish passers-by are aware of every appearance of a car whose occupants are the servants of the Führer. When they first notice it from a distance, a flight begins, an escape into the doorways of the houses. In a single instant the street takes on the appearance of a graveyard. In every place they go there is silence, and you won’t find a single living soul on the street. Thousands flee, but many are caught. Fear reigns in every corner..."

seeking Nazi support.

In 1978 the State of Israel
honours him with a stamp

In Palestine – AVRAHAM STERN (אברהם שטרן‎), founder of LeHI Jewish terror group, puts forth the fascist ideology of his organization in what is called the 18 Principles of Rebirth ('Zionism' having already changed to become a political ideology):
1 – The nation: The Jewish people is a covenanted people, the originator of monotheism, formulator of the prophetic teachings, standard bearer of human culture, guardian of glorious patrimony. The Jewish people is schooled in self-sacrifice and suffering; its vision, survivability and faith in redemption are indestructible.
2 – The homeland: The homeland in the Land of Israel within the borders delineated in the Bible ("To your descendants, I shall give this land, from the River of Egypt [Wadi El Arish] to the great Euphrates River [at Lake al-Assad, Syria]." Genesis 15:18) This is the land of the living, where the entire nation shall live in safety.
3 – The nation and its land: Israel conquered the land with the sword. There it became a great nation and only there it will be reborn. Hence Israel alone has a right to that land. This is an absolute right. It has never expired and never will.
[He clearly does not know the Jewish Bible for which he gives his nation the credit under #1!]
4 – The Goals
1 – Redemption of the land. 2 – Establishment of sovereignty. 3 – Revival of the nation.
There is no sovereignty without the redemption of the land, and there is no national revival without sovereignty.
These are the goals of the organization during the period of war and conquest:
5 – Education: Educate the nation to love freedom and zealously guard Israel's eternal patrimony. Inculcate the idea that the nation is master to its own fate. Revive the doctrine that "The sword and the book came bound together from heaven" (Midrash Vayikra Rabba 35:8)
6 – Unity: The unification of the entire nation around the banner of the Hebrew freedom movement. The use of the genius, status and resources of individuals and the channelling of the energy, devotion and revolutionary fervour of the masses for the war of liberation.
7 – Pacts: Make pacts with all those who are willing to help the struggle of the organization and provide direct support.
8 – Force: Consolidate and increase the fighting force in the homeland and in the Diaspora, in the underground and in the barracks, to become the Hebrew army of liberation with its flag, arms, and commanders.
9 – War: Constant war against those who stand in the way of fulfilling the goals.
10 – Conquest: The conquest of the homeland from foreign rule and its eternal possession.
These are the tasks of the movement during the period of sovereignty and redemption:
11 – Sovereignty: Renewal of Hebrew sovereignty over the redeemed land.
12 – Rule of justice: The establishment of a social order in the spirit of Jewish morality and prophetic justice. Under such an order no one will go hungry or unemployed. All will live in harmony, mutual respect and friendship as an example to the world.
13 – Reviving the wilderness: Build the ruins and revive the wilderness for mass immigration and population increase.
14 – Aliens: Solve the problem of alien population [i.e. all non-Jewish inhabitants of Palestine] by exchange of population.
15 – In-gathering of the exiles: Total in-gathering of the exiles to their sovereign state.
16 – Power: The Hebrew nation shall become a first-rate military, political, cultural and economical entity in the Middle East and around the Mediterranean Sea.
17 – Revival: The revival of the Hebrew language as a spoken language by the entire nation, the renewal of the historical and spiritual might of Israel. The purification of the national character in the fire of revival.
18 – The temple: The building of the Third Temple as a symbol of the new era of total redemption.
Israel's Right to

Zionist Hostilities

In Britain – Throughout the summer of 1940, German and British planes duel over Britain, as the Luftwaffe attempts to disable RAF airfields ahead of a planned land invasion. In September, German high command indefinitely postpone the invasion and instead switch their focus to weakening civilian morale. Beginning on 7 September, London is hammered by hundreds of German bombers for 57 consecutive nights. Over the next eight months, the attacks on the capital intensify until, by the spring of 1941, raids with a death toll of over 1,000 civilians are not uncommon.
London Blitz
Many other British cities, particularly major ports and cities involved in military manufacturing, such as Birmingham, Hull, Bristol, Sheffield and Glasgow were also heavily targeted. Coventry, home to many munitions factories, became a particular victim of the Luftwaffe's strikes. (See November).
In France – An article in Revue des Deux Mondes by Marshall PÉTAIN, expresses his pro-Nazi views, saying –
when France examined "the principles which have assured the victory of her adversaries [Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy] ...she would be surprised to recognise throughout them her own works, her purest and most authentic tradition".
In Germany – Jews are banned from using telephones.
Poland – On behalf of the Polish Resistance, WITOLD PILECKI deliberately has himself arrested by the Germans during a raid in the Warsaw district of Zoliborz and is taken to the Auschwitz concentration camp (prisoner No. 4859) in order to supply information on German activities in Auschwitz. He later writes –
"I am expected to describe bare facts only [to the Polish Underground]. But we were not made of wood."
Poland's government-in-exile later uses his report (known as 'Witold's Report') to help convince the Allies that the Holocaust is taking place. Pilecki becomes a chronicler of the Holocaust, sending his descriptions of everyday life in Auschwitz to the Polish underground movement. In one report, he writes that the inmates had to build one of the gas chambers and a large oven. He survived beatings, two bouts of pneumonia, and witnessed the Germans sending Soviet prisoners of war and Jews to the gas chambers.
He later
wrote –
"People were so packed together that they were unable to fall down in the moment of their death"
(After two-and-a-half years in the concentration camp, Pilecki uses forged documents to get himself assigned to work in a bakery outside the electric fence. On the night of Easter Sunday 1943, he and a group of other inmates force open a door and flee.)
on May 8, 1947, in Soviet Poland after the war, its secret police arrest PILECKI and he is quickly convicted of 'espionage' in a show trial. His former concentration camp inmates beg the new prime minister, Józef Cyrankiewicz, who had also survived Auschwitz, to pardon Pilecki. Cyrankiewicz, though acknowledging Pilecki's meritorious deeds, makes it clear to the judge that he was not to use them as mitigating circumstances in favour of the defendant.
PILECKI is sentenced to death on the false charge of espionage, and on May 25, 1948, Pilecki is taken from his cell and executed in a manner later referred to in Poland as the 'Katyn method,' in which the executioner fires a pistol into the back of the convicted prisoner's head at close range. It was the method used by Soviet intelligence to murder c.22,000 captured Poles in the forests near Katyn during 1940

When Faÿ was sentenced to hard-labor-for-life after the war, Gertrude and Alice campaigned for his release, and several years later Alice contributed money to Faÿ's escape from prison.

In Riga, Latvia – A trainload of Jews deported from Berlin are massacred on arrival. Estimates of 13–15,000 were given by defendants in post-war trials, but the figure of 27,800 reported by Einsatzgruppe A unit at the time is probably more correct.
2: In Ukraine – HITLER visits the defeated Heeresgrüppe Süd in Rostow. Because of bad weather his plane has to land in Poltava, where Hitler spends the night.

Hong Kong Attack
Much Later:
To assist the Chinese liberation (from the Japanese) of Hong Kong's Stanley Internment Camp (赤柱拘留營) for non-Chinese civilian prisoners in 1945, an interned local jeweller with limited tools bravely engraves a coded message on one grain of rice which is then smuggled out of the camp in a container full of rice.
it is dashed across the open ground at the main gate by a camp guard but its Chinese courier then painstakingly picks up every grain, saving the special grain.
THE CODE     THE MEANING (on blue background)
Vil  –  Village     XB  –  No 59   10 MIL  –  10 000 enemy 
50 MAC-G  –  50 machine guns
AREA LM  –  territory 93
MINED  –  MineD
UG  –  Agent UG
This information is key to the destruction of the Japanese machine gun...
This unique grain is eventually donated to the Stanley Camp Museum in 2013 by the Hackett family who had settled in South Africa.
The extermination of Jews in the Chelmno death-camp begins by mass gassing, using exhaust gasses from mobile vans.

northwestern shore of Lake Ontario (between Whitby and Oshawa), Canada – WILLIAM STEPHENSON (born Stanger of Icelandic descent, code-named 'Intrepid') of British Security Coordination (BSC) based in New York now establishes 'Camp X' (jointly operated by BSC and the Government of Canada) to train under-cover operatives.

camp is originally designed to link Britain and the United States at a time when the US is forbidden by its Neutrality Act to be directly involved in World War II.
This is the first training school for clandestine operations in Canada and North America. About 2,000 British, Canadian and American covert operators are trained (from 1941 through 1945), including students from ISO, American Office of Strategic Services (OSS), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), United States Navy and Military Intelligence, and the United States Office of War Information, among them five future directors of what would later become the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), etc.
A speech is made by HITLER to the Gauleiter, according to GOEBBEL's diary (in Longerich's translation) –
"As concerns the Jewish question, the Fuhrer is determined to make a clean sweep. He had prophesied to the Jews that if they once again brought about a world war they would experience their own extermination (vernichtung). This was not just an empty phrase. The World War is there, the extermination of Jewry (Judentum) must be the necessary consequence. This question must be seen without sentimentality. We are not here in order to have sympathy with the Jews, rather we sympathise with our own German people. If the German people have now once again sacrificed as many as 16,000 dead in the Eastern campaign, then the authors of this bloody conflict must pay with their lives".
Hitler blames the Jews
for the war
In Germany
– General Governor HANS FRANK, who is in Berlin at this time, records in his diary –
"In Berlin we were told 'why all this trouble? We cannot use them in the Ostland or the Reichscommissariat either. Liquidate them yourselves! We must destroy the Jews wherever we encounter them and wherever it is possible in order to preserve the entire structure of the Third Reich.
...we cannot shoot these 3.5 million Jews. We can't poison them. But we will, however, be able to undertake interventions which in some way lead to a successful annihilation, and indeed in connection with the large scale measures to be undertaken from the Reich and to be discussed. The General Government must become just as free of Jews as the Reich is. Where and how that happens is a matter for the institutions which we must put into action and create here and the effectiveness I will report on to you in good time". 
the Soviet Union – German Police Battalion 9 completes 6 months in which hundreds of thousands of Jews are slaughtered.
German Police Battalion 3 begins mass killings of Jews that eventually number hundreds of thousands.
