Hungary SIG #Hungary RE: Yad vaShem-Auschwitz Victims-Additional Data #hungary


Katz, Itzik <Itzik.Katz@...>
 

The Auschwitz records mentioned by Jacob only contain names of inmates
up to and including 1943. Since the deportations >from Hungary started in
1944 it is very unlikely for members of the H-SIG looking for their
Hungarian relatives to find any relevant information in there. I tried
looking for my relatives in that database and failed.

Subject: [h-sig] Yad vaShem-Auschwitz Victims-Additional Data

Dear Genners and Siggers,
As you probably know the Auschwitz Museum website has
an alphabetical list of 69,000 victims who were
executed there,including non Jews.I just discovered
that Yad vaShem has posted the same list on the PoT
section but with additional data:
the names of the victim's parents. Thus I now know
that the parents of my relative Hermann KOENIGSBUCH
from Michalovce were Joseph KOENIGSBUCH and Helene
BLAS. Only by having his father's given name I know
how he is connected to me(Joseph and my grandfather
Ascher were brothers).
I assume that BLAS family is >from Slovakia. If it
rings a bell I would like to hear privately.
