I am assisting a Holocaust survivor who wants to learn more about her
father who is believed to have survived the camps.
As most Hungarians, he went by many names, Yosef (Hebrew), Eugen or
Eugene (English), Jeno (Hungarian) and Yoselle (Yiddish) STERN.
Yosef was born in Satmar and before the war he resided in Sighet
Marmatiei. He was married to Sarolta HALPERT.
On May 4, 1945 he was liberated by the 71st Infantry Division at the
Gunskirchen Concentration camp, a sub-camp of Mauthausen-Gusen, in
He then went to the Wels DP camp. He was very ill and in 1946 he was
transferred to a hospital in Budapest.
We have no information about Yosef STERN after the time he was
Looking for someone that might have known Yosef at any of the camps or
anywhere else, or some suggestions of where to continue our search.
MODERATOR: Contact information should be sent directly to Roberta;
suggestions for research techniques or resources may be shared
with the Group.
