By early 1943, most Jews in Frankfurt am Main and the vicinity had already been deported to camps in the east or to the Theresienstadt ghetto, and by the middle of that year most of them had been murdered. Only Jews who had non-Jewish spouses or who worked at the district offices of the Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland (Reich's Association of the Jews in Germany) still lived in or near Frankfurt.
