Re: Questions about a JOWBR entry for a cousin - Michael ORLOW #germany

Fritz Neubauer
 

Dear Lin,

I think there are two points that may explain Michael ORLOW's grave in Vienna:

1) The murder took place in the concentration camp Buchenwald on German
territory and not in a extermination camps in the East. (No urns came back >from
the East.) What I read about such a situation is this:

Relatives were offered the possibility of having an urn to them
- for a fee. Whether the content of the urn had anything to do
with the remains of the victim is open to question ... And the
official cause of death was fake in most cases.

2) The body had been cremated, and I am almost certain, the cremation
would have taken place in Buchenwald, not in Vienna.

I hope that helps, Fritz Neubauer in Beilefeld.

Re: Questions about a JOWBR entry for a Buchenwald victim - Michael ORLOW #germany

Tobias A. Kemper <kemper@...>
 

Lin Herz lin2@cfl.rr.com asked about a JOWBR entry for her cousin,
Michael ORLOW. [some details follow below.]
<I don't understand. I don't understand why he would be in a
cemetery, since he was murdered by the Nazis. ?? I didn't know that any
of those lost were buried- and that there would be burial notes and all.
Hello Lin,
as I understand, Michael Orlow has died in Buchenwald Concentration
Camp. Two facts are important:

a) Michael ORLOW died in early 1940, i.e. about two years before the
Wannsee Conference and before the "official" beginning of the shoa. In
this time, Jews have been killed or died in Nazi concentration camps,
but they were not killed systematically in this time.

b) Buchenwald was not an extermination Camp like Auschwitz, Majdanek
etc. in eastern Europa. Buchenwald was primarly used to keep both Jewish and
non-Jewish prisoners and to force them to slave labor, but it was not
used to kill them.

I presume that Michael Orlow has died of hunger or illness or maybe was
murdered in another way, but at this early time, the relatives got the
ashes of their dead relatives to bury them.

The victims of the NS "euthanasia" in 1940/41 were burnt to ashes, and
then the relatives got some ashes in a post parcel to bury them (but in
most cases, really "some" ashes, not of exactly their murdered family member).
