The deportation on November 22, 1941, from Frankfurt to Kaunas in occupied Lithuania was the third transport to leave the city, just a few days after the second deportation, with over 900 Jews. Jakob Sprenger, Gauleiter (district party leader) of Hesse-Nassau, had set himself the task to make his Gau (the Nazi equivalent to province or state) and especially Frankfurt “judenfrei” (Free of Jews) as quickly as possible. The deportation train had been ordered by the RSHA for November 21, 1941 with Riga as its destination and was registered at the Deutsche Reichsbahn (German national train) under the designation "Da 28". However, due to overcrowding in Riga at that time, the actual destination of this deportation was altered to Kaunas.
