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