According to the Reichsvereinigung, in the autumn of 1941 a total of 7034 Jews from Berlin were deported to the East, 4077 (according to statistics for October) were sent to Litzmannstadt. The information for Litzmannstadt can be compared with the “experience report” of the North Rhine-Westphalia Police Department, “the introduction of 20,000 Jews and 5,000 gypsies into the Ghetto Litzmannstadt”, after which a total of 4187 Jews arrived with the four transports from Berlin the transcript of the document [Yad Vashem Archives, O.6 / 222]. Taking into account the 122 persons from Emden, who were transported via Berlin with the second transport to Litzmannstadt (see Emden – Berlin after Litzmannstadt), 4065 Berlin Jews would have been sent into the ghetto according to the police.

The transcripts of the transport lists, produced in the Ghetto Litzmannstadt, contain data regarding 4050 Jews from Berlin and 122 from Emden; a total of 4172 deportees from the Berlin transports. The lists of the “resettled” in the ghetto recorded 4202 persons (without supplements). The memorandum for the Jews of Berlin in the ghetto Litzmannstadt contains the names of 4206 deportees, the difference between the transport lists being attributed to non-Jewish spouses and non-registered micro-children.
