As SS-Obergruppenführer and head of all Einsatzgruppen in Eastern Russia, Friedrich August Jeckeln ordered the deaths of over 100,000 people. So efficient were his methods that they were known as the Jeckeln System. Jews were organized into columns of 500 to 1000 people and taken to the killing grounds where they were stripped and made to lie on top of corpses of those shot before them.
