Re: Trying to understand conflicting information on the Yad Vashem Website #holocaust

Shalom Peter,
As I can read the the Yad Vashem's information, the entry about Hilde's death is based on German archives documentation on deportations. The German source ("Victims of the Persecution of Jews under the National Socialist Tyranny in Germany 1933 - 1945") is about victims and persecuted persons, not necessarily murdered victims.   The second entry is based on a more reliable source, Pinkas Hanitzolim and Hilde indeed survived. My search on Arolsen archives revealed that Hilde filled in a tracing request for Max and the original letter, written in German in 1947, is available online. Her address, was Regensburg, Neupfarrplatz 12. Another person, Leizer Lehrer filled in  a tracing request for Max too. There  are also 11 undisclosed documents related to Hilde's medical treatment.
