The Einsatzgruppen Special Units are re-formed and trained in Saxony in preparation for the impending invasion of the Soviet Union. Their task will be to eliminate enemies of Germany by shooting communists and partisans.

Their main victims however, will be over 1 million unarmed Jewish men, women and children. An unknown number of Gypsies, but certainly tens of thousands, will also be killed in this campaign of murder.
