The Patterns and Limits of the European Genocide

Show Summary Details


The westward expansion of the genocide was not immediately accomplished in Soviet territories except in the eastern portion of Galicia, as overcrowding in the Generalgouvernement and the opposition of Frank’s administration hindered eastward deportation. There are several other factors that may have in a way slowed down the cleansing process. Several issues arose from the delay and other obstructions were experienced during the period of deportation. The deportation is an essential part of the mass murder process, as it was seen as a death sentence that awaited the majority of German Jews. This chapter illustrates and thoroughly analyzes the general situation of Jewish policy in Germany and in other places that were covered by this rule during 1941.
