On May 21 1943, Rolf Günther, Adolf Eichmann’s deputy in Department IVB4, informed all local police headquarters of Heinrich Himmler’s order to complete all deportations of Jews from the Greater Reich and the Protectorate to the East and to Theresienstadt by June 30 1943. The new regulations included several groups of Jews whose deportation had been postponed until then. This included sick and infirm Jews, Jews who were still employed as slave labourers for the war industry, and employees of the Reichsvereinigung der Juden (Reich's Association of the Jews in Germany). The only exemptions were Jews who were married to non-Jews. The regulations also provided guidelines regarding the procedure of the deportations. In the case of smaller deportations consisting of up to 400 Jews, special cars, connected to regular trains, were to be used.
