Is it possible to obtain copies of the records (transport
lists) that identify my great-grandfather as being on these transports?"

My great-aunt Hermine {nee KOHN/KERNER} SCHIFFMANN and her first cousin
Fanny {nee BIACH} LEWALD [born London - teaching English in Vienna] were also
apparently on the transports to Treblinka >from Theresienstadt just
two days before - ie 19 September 1942.

All I can imagine is that the railway timetable permitted transports to Treblinka
at that period or that they had "spare capacity" at Treblinka but were overloaded

I have written POTs for both of them. By the time Siegmund, arrived Hermine and
Fanny and countless others were already dead. I have not taken
this any further. I often wonder if these elderly people ever arrived
there alive. It does not bear thinking about. Let us remember them all
here today.

Were there any known survivors of Treblinka?
