a) Excess of mortality in the Old Reich + Sudetenland + Austria + Bohemia and Moravia from 1933 to March 31,1943................................................................................................................. 83,889
b) Deaths in the concentration camps
from 1933 to December 31, 1942 ................................................................................................................. 27,347
On the subject of captives on December 31, 1942, the four following categories are presented:
c) The ghettos ....................................................................................................... 297,914
d) The work camps ................................................................................................................. 185,776
e) The concentration camps ..................................................................................................................... 9,127
f) The prisons .............................................................................................................. 458

These data merit a few precise details.

In the first place, it is necessary to underscore that out of a total of 4,996,765 direct victims of the anti Jewish persecution enumerated until present, there are 4,392,254 "evacuees," that is to say, 87.9%. Among the latter 1,953,297 (44.5%) are in reality dead: on the one hand, the 1,842,016 missing at the census in Russia and, on the other hand, those accounted for by Korherr under the heading "excess of mortality" (83,889) and "deaths in the concentration camps" (27,347).

"Excess of mortality" is commented upon by Korherr in the abridged report in the following manner: "The extraordinary excess of mortality of the Jews of the Old Reich stems from the senility and vital weakness of Judaism as well as from it great mortality: in the first trimester of 1943, 22 births were recorded and 1,113 deaths."

In the text of the detailed report of sixteen pages, very numerous suicides are mentioned. That means that in 1942, in Germany itself, births are practically inexistant [sic] and the "extraordinary" "natural" mortality is explained by suicides.

The "deaths in the concentration camps" obviously relate to the persons arrested in Germany since the "rise to power"; among them 27,347 are dead and 9,127 are still alive on December 31, 1942 (the latter are found under our heading "captives in the concentration camps"). To be accounted for apart, it is obvious that these dead and these captives were arrested for other motives than the measures of "evacuation."

Are they persons arrested for political motives or those of common law?

The same question may be raised as to the 458 persons incarcerated in the prisons.

Insofar as the ghettos are concerned, in the detailed report seven large ones in Poland appear, with their effectives on 12-31-42. The
