Nederlands Exposition in Auschwitz Persecution

The Jewish Council

Temporary Exemption

After the first deportation in July 1942, a complex exemption system was implemented, which temporarily exempted tens of thousand of Jews from deportation to Westerbork. A quarter of these Jews were exempt by the Jewish Council. They were given all sorts of jobs at the Jewish Council, such as at the department for helping deportees. In the end, it became clear that everybody was going to be deported, also Asscher and Cohen, the two chairmen of the Jewish Council. Asscher survived Bergen-Belsen concentration camp and Cohen survived Theresienstadt.
