Abstract:

The town of Šiauliai, home to ca. 8,000 Jews, was occupied by the German Army on 26 June 1941. The first mass shootings of Jews (either prominent personalities or political adversaries) followed on 30 June and in early July. On ghetto was established in July, and the resettlement of Jews to the ghetto continued until the end of September. In the same month, several mass murders of Jews took place; by November the Jewish population of Šiauliai had dropped to 4,700. The remaining Jews became victims of legal discrimination and various restrictions. A Jewish Council and Jewish police were established in the ghetto. The period from the end of 1941 to August 1943 was "quiet", with no mass murders. In September 1943 the ghetto was transformed into a concentration camp; in July 1944 it was liquidated, and most of the prisoners were transferred to the Stutthof concentration camp, and later to Dachau. Dwells on attempts to establish a Jewish political underground in the ghetto, and on rescuers who hid Jewish escapees from the ghetto and helped them.
