Konigsberg, Germany (now Kaliningrad, Russia)

Antisemitic persecution had reduced the Jewish population of Konigsberg to 3,500 Jews living in the city by 1933, down to 1,585 in May 1939. Emigration was prohibited after 1939. The Jews who remained in 1942 were shipped to concentration camps, including Theresienstadt in occupied Czechoslovakia, Kaiswerwald in occupied Latvia, and camps in Minsk.
