The database "Breslau Deportations", which was compiled by Peter W. Landé and USHMM volunteers (many thanks!), is based on information in the book by Alfred Konieczny, Tormersdorf, Grüssau, Riebnig: Obozy przejściowe dla Żydów Dolnego Śląska z lat 1941-1943 [Transit camps for Jews from Lower Silesia in the years 1941-1943], namely the alphabetical tables of deportations from these three camps (p. 89-165). The last column (Uwagi ‘remarks’) contains Roman numerals that are not explained. In the database, they are interpreted as months, but it is more likely that they refer to table XIX on p. 83, which shows the dates of the deportations and the number of people deported. The accompanying text mentions the destinations of some of the transports; from the figures in the German summary, one can infer the rest:

 

Number

Date

Destination

II

13 April 1942

III

“the East”

IV

VIII

This means that this collection does include information as to where each deportee was ultimately sent.
