I tried a search using the name Goldberg --no first name . Many results—3,829-- were returned. I clicked on one for notarial records and another for death and for the death it listed the date at Auschwitz he died with the source being the Dutch Government Gazette, You are able to view and to download the records. There is an icon that states if the record is available.
