The International Institute for Holocaust Research

With the outbreak of WWII in September 1939, Adolf Hitler declared his intention to deport the Jewish population from the territories of the greater Third Reich and the “Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia” (Protektorat Böhmen und Mähren). However, apart from a few feeble, halfhearted attempts, the actual deportations were postponed a number of times as a result of political and military developments.
