The report said that out ot 118,310 Jews who lived in that region be¬ fore March 15, 1939, only 61,320 remained on March 31, 1942, An¬ other document, consisted of a small map revealing that on Oct. 31, 1943, only 8531 Jews lived In the area known as the "Protecto- lat." 1 Documents showed that 90 per¬ cent of the Jews deported In the first transports to Nlsko, Poland, which were directed by Eichmann himself, were subsequently mur¬ dered.
