Thanks to the kindness of Naomi Teveth in Tel Aviv, , I have finally
found the ultimate fate of my maternal grandmother Olga BEINER, (nee
STEINER, in Opava). She was deported to Kaunas (Kovno) Lithuania on
20.11.1941 and murdered there on 25.11.1941 (Yad Vashem only has her
as missing, which is all my parents ever discovered).
This raises for me a question: did the destination have any logic? Did
her papers show ancestry in Lithuania, or was this just the
destination of the next transport? Does anyone have any ideas?
Dear Steven,
Olga BEINER has also an entry in the Baltic Memorial Book a part of the
transport of November 20, 1941 >from Munich to Kowno where the murder
took place on November 25, 1941. There is an accompanying article in
English and German with the title "Mass murder in Kovno" in the book. In
this article it says that the transport was originally supposed to go to
Riga but was diverted to Kowno (even though the papers had been stamped
"evacuated to Riga"). Since Olga's birth place is Troppau in what is now
the Czech Republic (then Sudetenland), there is no connection with the
place of deportation.

Olga BEINERs last address in Munich is provided as Franz-Joseph-Str. 29.
Let me know if you want further details, with kind regards,
