Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Estonia was included in the Reich Commissariat Ostland along with Lithuania, Latvia and western Belorussia. Before the end of the year most of the Jews who had not been able to escape into Russia were murdered by the Einsatzgruppe A, led by Walter Stahlecker, with the assistance of police units and Estonian collaborators. There were no ghettos created during the German occupation in Estonia.
