In early January 1943, Himmler visited Warsaw and discovered that
tens of thousands of "unessential" Jews were still present in the
ghetto. Himmler ordered an immediate operation to once again weed
out the "useless eaters." [...]
Stroop's seventy-five-page, day-by-day account of the operation,
prepared for Himmler and first
displayed by Jackson
for the judges during his opening address, was entitled The Warsaw
Ghetto Is No More. The assistant prosecutor dealing with the
persecution of the Jews referred to it as "the finest example of ornate
German craftsmanship, leather bound, profusely illustrated, typed on
heavy bond paper ... the almost unbelievable recital of the proud
accomplishment by Major General of Police Stroop."
