ORIGINAL 1941 LETTER FROM

HANS BIEBOW, CHIEF OF THE NAZI ADMINISTRATION OF LODZ GHETTO to THE WARSAW BRANCH OFFICE OF THE SS-WVHA

ABOUT THE RELOCATION OF 840 JEWISH FORCED LABORERS AND THEIR LUGGAGE

Hans Biebow was the overseer of the Jewish Ghetto Lodz / Litzmannstadt from 1940 to 1944. Among the Nazi hierarchy, Hans Biebow was an early exponent of using the Jews as cheap labor rather than killing them, but he readily adapted to the extermination policy. Survivors report his encouraging the last surviving Jews of the Ghetto in the summer of 1944 to board the trains to Auschwitz with a speech that began "My Jews...” and promised them work in the West. Biebow was able to escape into hiding in Germany in but was recognized by a survivor of the ghetto and subsequently arrested in Bremen. After he was extradited by the Allies to Łódź, he stood trial in April 1947. He was found guilty on all counts and executed by hanging.
This letter that Biebow sent in 1941 deals about the relocation of 840 Jewish laborers from Ghetto Litzmannstadt (Lodz) to an unknown location. The 840 Jews had two railroad cars of luggage and Biebow states in the letter to the SS-WVHA that the Nazi office in charge of handling the vast amounts of luggage from prisoners will take care of the content of these two railroad cars.
