The International Institute for Holocaust Research

By late 1943, the Nazi authorities had deported nearly all the Jews of Frankfurt am Main to the east or to the Theresienstadt ghetto where most were murdered. Only Jews married to non-Jews and individuals who worked at the offices of the Reich's Association of the Jews in Germany (Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland) at Hermesweg 5–7, as well as those defined under Nazi law as mischlinge (of mixed racial descent), continued to live in and around Frankfurt.
