I presume that Chust/Khust ist identical with Huszt. According Braham (sorry
to quote him to often, but he gives some information about the majority of the
settlements in the Shoa period)

Huszt. beside the local Jews, >from the district Alsoszineva, Gernyes and
Varjas and >from the villages Alsohidegpatak and Eotvosfalv - an additional
5000 person were collected in the streets Csoregreti, Izai and Kossuth. The
members of the Jewish Council were: president: Lazarevits, Rosenbaum, dr.
Hegedus, dr. Polgar and Markovits. The 11000 Jews collected in Huszt were
deported between 24 May and 6. June in four transports.

The transports passed Kassa/Kosice 24. May (3328 Person), 26. May (3249 P), 2.
June (2396 P), 6. June (1852 P).

I hope you can follow my English, I am uneasy sometimes to send the message to
the whole H-SIG or just the interested person, I believe that others might be
also interested on this Holocaust related information.

Esztergom was together with other settlements (Acs, Baracska, Biatorbagy,

Martonvasar, Oroszlany, Perbete, Pusztazamor, Soskut, Sza'r, Tarnok, Tata,

June in 2 transports 5500 Jews were deported. They passed Kassa/Kosice on the 13
June (2790 P) on the 16 (2673 P). On the other side it must be a miracle if a 5
year old Jewish boy (without being a twin) survives Auschwitz. Try ITS in
Arolsen, in many cases they have documents.

More Names #hungary

Ragfhg@...
 

I'm sure these two women's names belong to the same person, but can anyone
explain Fani (also seen as Fanny) and Fege? (Is Fege Hungarian or Hebrew?)
These are >from records in mid 1800s. Also the same thing for a man,
sometimes seen as Herman, sometimes as Heinrich (both German, I think). What
would Hungarian and/or Hebrew equivalents be for those? Thank you again.

Re: jewishgen digest: June 12, 2000 #hungary

tom klein <tom_klein@...>
 

first, there are lots of authoritative sources on the holocaust in
hungary. apart >from books, you can also find material on the
internet, etc. (starting with the <http://www.jewishgen.org> site,
which has a search feature, and the h-sig, hungarian special interest
group, at <http://www.jewishgen.org/hungary/>.)

in more general terms, the men of military age were drafted and put
into forced labour battalions, mostly on the russian front. women,
children and the elderly were mostly shipped off to auschwitz to be
murdered, with the exception of about 30,000 who were kept for slave
labour and possibly ransoming in some form of "jews for trucks" deal.
(jewish slave labour was a valuable commodity which the ss sold to
private industry - see "schindler's list".) several transports were
sent to strasshof in austria instead. there is currently a
discussion of this going on through the h-sig list, which you should
be able to find by searching in the archives for "strasshof".
