Many of the deportees who were transported in the last transports to Auschwitz-Birkenau were Jews who had been caught in hiding. In a letter, dated March 2, 1944 to SS chief Heinrich Himmler, Higher SS- and Police-leader (HSSPF, Höhere SS- und Polizeiführer) Hanns Albin Rauter estimated that between 9,000 and 10,000 Jews lived ‘illegally’ [had gone into hiding] in the Netherlands and that about 600-700 of them were arrested monthly.
