"Code Language"

“Special treatment,” “special vehicle,” “special action” and similar terms, when occurring in German wartime documents dealing with the so-called “Jewish question,” are said to be mere camouflage words for murder – so orthodox historians claim. Yet as the contributions in this section show, this is not at all the case. Quite to the contrary, in many cases the German prefix “Sonder-” (=special) quite often had rather beneficial implications for the persons involved, in particular when dealing with the Auschwitz camp.
