Although Cologne had been heavily destroyed by British and American bombardments in the first half of 1943, the deportations of Jews still continued into the second half of the year. The Gauleiter (Party Leader) of Cologne, Josef Grohe, explicitly stated that all Jews without exception who were engaged in special forced labor assignments, would be deported. At the end of October 1943, 20 Jews from Cologne were transported to Theresienstadt.
