The majority of the Jewish population of East Prussia was deported in the summer of 1942 in large transports to Minsk, Riga and Theresienstadt. Later, smaller transports left for Theresienstadt via Berlin. By 1944, the only Jews remaining in the city of Königsberg were either enrolled in forced labour, or were protected by deportation by virtue of having a non-Jewish parent or by being married to a non-Jewish spouse. Upon the death of the non-Jewish spouse or of the non-Jewish parent, these Jewish relatives were added to the deportation lists.
