Despite the German withdrawal from the Eastern front and the heavy aerial bombardment of German cities, the deportation of Jews from German cities did not stop. On December 18, 1943, a circular signed by Gestapo chief Heinrich Müller was sent out to all local Sipo (Security Police) headquarters. It permitted the deportation of Jews whose marriage to non-Jews had terminated due to divorce or death of the non-Jewish spouse.
