The Einsatzgruppen were notorious mobile killing units that went in behind the German army as it advanced eastwards through Eastern Europe en route to the Soviet territories and whose principal task was the extermination of the Jews, Gypsies, Polish intelligentsia, Communists, suspected partisans and POWs.
These death squads, with the aid of security forces formed from the local civilians and police battalions in the occupied territories, carried out mass-murder operations and killed more than1.5 million people, mostly Jews.
