Despite the fact that Cologne was being bombed by Allied low-flying aircraft in 1944, three small transports were still sent to Theresienstadt. There were two special transports for single persons in February and April, and in mid September the Swiss consul Franz Rudolf von Weiss reported that the arrest of "Half Aryans" had begun in earnest. In October 1944, a group was sent to Theresiensadt and, immediately upon their arrival, the men were reportedly beaten to death.
