BICKART (b. Nurnberg 1898), Belgium -> Drancy -> Auschwitz -> #holocaust
There is an Ernst BICKART, born November 26, 1898 in Nuremberg, who was detained at the Camp de Gurs (Pyrénées-Atlantiques, France). Before Gurs, he was detained in the camp of Saint-Cyprien (Pyrénées-Orientales, France), being one of the 4,400 Jewish men "expelled" from Belgium on May 10, 1940.
At one time in 1941-1942 this Ernst Bickart lived in assigned residence in a small town near the city of Pau. He appeared on a list of people transferred from Gurs to the Rivesaltes camp at the beginning of September 1942. The majority of the people on this list were transferred from Rivesaltes to Drancy, then to Auschwitz.
There is also an Ernst BICKART, born November 11, 1898, who lived in Germany in Saarelouis and took refuge with his family in Luxembourg in 1935, then in Paris in 1937. It is said that he was interned in France in 1939 This Ernst Bickart would have emigrated to Bolivia in May 1941, then to the USA.
It is possible that there were two (or more) Ernst Bickarts.
Any information welcome. I can provide details of the "first" Ersnt Bickart.
