The International Institute for Holocaust Research

In February 1943, the RSHA (Reichssicherheitshauptamt, Reich Security Main Office) forwarded new deportation guidelines to local Gestapo headquarters. Henceforth, even Jews employed in slave labor could be doomed to this fate but those who had non-Jewish spouses or were defined as “Jews under the racial laws” (Geltungsjuden) would remain protected. In May 1943, the guidelines were toughened as Heinrich Himmler ordered the deportation of all inhabitants of Germany whom the Nuremberg laws defined as Jews.
