1941: Mass Murder
 pg. 264 
Dean of faculty at Berlin University, Dr. Franz Six was an SS general commanding a unit of Einsatzgruppe B and responsible for murdering more than 50,000 Jews. He was sentenced to only 20 years in prison and served but four because John McCloy, American high commissioner of Germany, chose to use him in the U.S. counterintelligence service. He later testified on behalf of Adolf Eichmann at Eichmann's trial in Jerusalem.

Those who survived were relegated to primitive camps with grass huts, like the one pictured here, or to crowded ghettos.
