"The "Jager report" was written by
a commander of one of the "Einsatzgruppen" (special task
forces) which were in charge of liquidating Jews,
communist leaders, partisans and others in the Soviet
To understand the magnitude of the
massacres, note the total number of victims - 137,346.
This is for one Einsatzgruppe, in a five month period,
in one area. This report reflects very clearly on the
plan to kill all the Jews, except those which were
needed for working purposes; those were, as the report
notes, "only" to be sterilized; Jager goes on to state
that "if despite sterilization a Jewess becomes pregnant
she will be liquidated."
There are many documents about the
Einsatzgruppen massacres in the Soviet Union, but the "Jager
report" is one of the most chillingly detailed of them.
