The majority of the Jewish population of East Prussia was deported during the summer of 1942 in three 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 labor, or were protected from deportation by virtue of having a non-Jewish parent or by being married to a non-Jewish spouse. When their non-Jewish spouse or parent died, these Jewish relatives were added to the deportation list.
