September 21, 1945

In 1944, Rosa Katz was taken from Gelsenberg Concentration Camp to Essen with a group of 520 Jewish women and girls whom defendants referred to collectively as “the Hungarian Jewesses,” although they came from various places. Krupp contracted to pay the Waffen-SS, Buchenwald, 4 Reichsmarks per day for each prisoner (NIK-7303). Defendant Ihn admitted in an affidavit that he ordered defendant Lehmann to return “these people” to Buchenwald just before the war’s end (D 274). Ms. Katz’s description of malnourishment, unsafe living quarters, abuse, brutal overwork, and inadequate clothing and air-raid protection was elaborated in others’ testimonies, including Krupp employees, several of whom received training as female SS guards specifically for these 520 women and girls at Krupp (NIK-11730).
