Re: Validation of death date of Dachau prisoner #rabbinic #holocaust

Hello Moses
My grandfather Jakob Schmidl also died in a sub camp of Dachau, having been transported from Auschwitz to Dachau on transport Ek on 28 September 1944.  His transport card, which is indexed on JewishGen's Dachau Concentration Camp Records, gives his death date as 7 February 1945, but that is the date his death was notified to Dachau.   His actual death date was 5 January 1945 in one of the Kaufering sub camps.   I discovered this in a document supplied by the Arolsen Archives.  
With best wishes for your research
