Two reports about the deportation of Jews from Berlin were written by Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Friedrich Justus Perels. Here is some more from the first report. Imagine going through the event described below…

During the night of October 16 (1941), some of those affected were taken from their apartments, some even being taken from the night shift at Siemens.

The people had between fifteen and twenty minutes to pack. Their treatment varied, including what they were permitted to take along.

They were then gathered in the synagogue on Levetzow Street, which had already been emptied, and apparantly stayed until 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 18.

(Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works: Volume 16: Conspiracy and Imprisonment: 1940-1945, 225-226).
