The International Institute for Holocaust Research

The Nazi authorities were apparently in need of additional killing sites for the Jews from Germany. Thus, the Baltic countries came into focus again in the second half of 1942. Eichmann decided to send seven additional trains from the Reich to ghettos and killing sites in the Baltic countries, starting from August 1942. Four mass deportations set out from Berlin to Riga on August 15, September 5, October 19 and 26. Two transports took Jews from Theresienstadt to Riga and Raasiku on August 20 and September 1, a village close to the Baltic coast 30 kilometres from Tallinn, the Estonian capital. One further transport left Frankfurt on September 24, the last large transport from that town, picking up Jews from Berlin en route, also with Raasiku as its destination.
