comment Why have some territorial annexations been rejected by the international community?
@dotancohen: Most PIL textbooks are OK on general principles, but superficial on the exact issue. Probably the most comprehensive discussion is by the editor of Akehurst's Introduction to Modern International Law, Peter Malanczuk, 'Das Golan-Gesetz im Lichte des Annexionsverbots und der occupatia bellica', ZaoRV 42(1982), and 'Jerusalem', EPIL [1990], and 'Israel, Status, Territory and Occupied Territories', EPIL [1995]. See also the so-called 'principle of effectiveness', which I assume the government of Israel regards as its bright hope in the long haul. Good luck.

comment Why have some territorial annexations been rejected by the international community?
@dotancohen The purpose of your question concerning Golan is a matter of public international law. Of course, PIL questions require a review of history in the form of state practice. On the question of Golan, the history that is relevant is that of the period after 1945. The reason for the circumscription is that the international regime for territorial acquisition is new after 1945. See any PIL textbook. Yes, there are exceptions to the prohibition against territorial annexation [see eg India and Goa] but none of them apply to the Golan. Perhaps this is for the projected law stack.

comment Borisov aktion of 23 July , 1941
In the transcript of the hearing of USA vs. Ohlendorf et al, the Einsatzgruppen case, Trials of War Criminals [1948] vol 4, page 1, you will find a useful organigram of the organizations and some names of the respective officers. Other information about dates of each officer's responsibility is in the text. The organization was modified over time. Also, in the testimony, you will find different assignments of responsibility over command structure. This may be of some small assistance.
