Charlie Roberts writes: "On some of the entries for
the Austrian DOEW database of Holocaust victims the
place of death is given as Landesgericht, Wien. The
literal translation is District Court, Vienna. Does
this mean that the victims were sentenced to death at
that court, or the death notified by the court or
murdered there? I would appreciate information
If you look carefully on Letter to the Stars:
you will see that the 17 victims lived at different
addresses on the Landesgerichtsstrasse, Vienna VIII.
ie this is a *street name*, not a court.
One or more may have been Sammel-adressen [collective
homes prior to deportation].
