The Info List - Korherr Report


--- Advertisement ---



The KORHERR REPORT is a 16-page document on the progress of the Holocaust in Germany and German-controlled Europe. It was written in January 1943 by the chief inspector of the statistical bureau of the SS and professional statistician Dr Richard Korherr under the title die Endlösung der Judenfrage, in English the Final Solution
Final Solution
to the Jewish Question . Korherr, commissioned by Heinrich Himmler calculated that, from 1937 to December 1942, the number of Jews
Jews
in Europe had fallen by 4 million, of which 1.274 million were subject to "special treatment" ( Sonderbehandlung - a code name for mass murder). The decrease of Soviet Russian Jews
Jews
from the territories overrun in Operation Barbarossa
Operation Barbarossa
was not included due to lack of statistical data. The summaries came from the RSHA office receiving all SS reports about the so-called "already evacuated" Jews. Their "special treatment" was removed from the document on the request of Himmler
Himmler
who intended to share it with Hitler.

SIGNIFICANCE

The main report, published in March of that year, summarized how many Jews
Jews
remained in Germany, Austria and Europe; detailed the numbers of Jews
Jews
detained in the Nazi concentration camps
Nazi concentration camps
; how many Jews
Jews
had died natural deaths since 1933; and how many Jews
Jews
had been evacuated to the eastern territories. Himmler
Himmler
accepted the report, but made Korherr change the word Sonderbehandlung or "special treatment," to the word durchgeschleust or "processed." The report calculated that, from 1937 to December 1942, the number of Jews
Jews
in Europe had fallen by 4 million.

Korherr ascribed this fall to "emigration, partially due to the excess mortality of the Jews
Jews
in Central and Western Europe, partially due to the evacuations especially in the more strongly populated Eastern Territories, which are here counted as ongoing."

By way of explanation, Korherr added that "It must not be overlooked in this respect that of the deaths of Soviet Russian Jews
Jews
in the occupied Eastern territories only a part was recorded, whereas deaths in the rest of European Russia and at the front are not included at all. In addition there are movements of Jews
Jews
inside Russia to the Asian part which are unknown to us. The movement of Jews
Jews
from the European countries outside the German influence is also of a largely unknown order of magnitude. On the whole European Jewry should since 1933, i.e. in the first decade of National Socialist German power, have lost almost half of its population."

POST-WAR

Korherr was never a member of the SS and denied all knowledge of the Holocaust, saying that he had “only heard about exterminations after the collapse in 1945.”

In a letter he sent to the German magazine Der Spiegel
Der Spiegel
in July 1977, Korherr said that he had not written the report on Himmler’s order” and that the “statement that I had mentioned that over a million Jews
Jews
had died in the camps of the Generalgouvernement and the Warthegau through special treatment is also inaccurate. I must protest against the word ‘died’ in this context. It was the very word ‘ Sonderbehandlung ’ that led me to call the RSHA by phone and ask what this word meant. I was given the answer that these were Jews
Jews
who were settled in the Lublin district .”
