Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Re: deportations of Polish-born Jews from Germany to Bentschen/Zbaszyn #galicia

Renee Steinig

Several messages to our list and some that I received personally
mentioned unsuccessful efforts to find Viennese Jews in Gedenkbuch.
Please note that my response last week to Peter Bein's question referred
to deportations of Polish-born Jews >from ** Germany **. Gedenkbuch
does not list Jews who lived in Austria before or during the war. Sorry if
that wasn't clear.

Peter Bein <> asked:

<<On October 27, 1938 thousands of Jewish residents of Germany holding
Polish passports were deported to Poland. Has anyone seen a list of names
of those deportees?>>

and I responded in part...

<<The names of over 4,446 Jews who were deported to Bentschen (now
Zbaszyn), a Polish-German border town, appear in the German memorial
book, "Gedenkbuch: Opfer der Verfolgung der Juden unter der
nationalsozialistischen Gewaltherrschaft in Deutschland 1933 - 1945.">>
