What was Aktion Reinhard?

Postby Ehrenwinkel » 01 Jul 2005 14:45

Can someone please give a SHORT and DEFINITE answer to this question: Was 'Aktion Reinhard' (or 'Reinhardt'?) the collection of property from extermination victims in Poland, or the Belzec-Sobibor-Treblinka extermination programme administered by Odilo Globocnik? Authorities seem to differ.

The matter has been hotly debated here, with a result which was neither short nor definite:

"Aktion Reinhardt" -- What did it denote?

Thanks for that link, Mike. I see the website has been heavily updated since I last visited it, with an extensive collection of hyperlinked documents. In addition to the well-presented overviews available on the site, readers who followed the discussions on "Aktion Reinhard(t)" may find these new charts helpful:

Edit:

The term was taken in remembrance of SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich[...]
