Dzankoi, Crimea

An order to liquidate the Jewish camp at Dzankoi [Dzankoy] was documented by the rear command of the Eleventh Army on January 1st, 1942. It is preserved as NOKW-1866 and states that due to "hunger and the imminent outbreak of epidemics", the camp "must, therefore, be liquidated." Arad quotes the document in "The Holocaust in the Soviet Union", p.208. It is yet more evidence that the Eleventh Army in Crimea was involved in the liquidation of Jews.

In the months following this liquidation, other Jews were executed in the vicinity of Dzankoy and Simferopol, in addition to other parts of the Crimea, as documented in EM 178 here.
