Austrian Jews in Concentration Camps


by Peter Lande

INTRODUCTION

During the course of collecting information on Jews of other nationalities in concentration camps, I came across the names of large numbers of Austrian Jews. Since no Gedenbuch (memorial book) for Austrian victims of the Holocaust has as yet been published, I decided to collect some of these names. The resulting short list is far from complete, even for the camps which are cited, but is intended to help researchers interested in the fate of Austrian Jews determine some of the sources which might be consulted.

The names were taken from concentration camp records, including Stutthof, Gross Rosen and Sachsenhausen, French deportation lists and Liliana Fargion'sbook, Il Libro dalli' Italia della Memorial Gli Ebrei deportati, which lists persons deported from Italy. All of these sources are available at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

The fields included in this list are as follows:

Family Name
First Name(s)
Maiden Name
Date of Birth
Place of Birth
Last Known Place of Residence
Camp to Which Person Was Sent
His/Her Fate (if known)

Note: A further site to check out is http://www.doew.at which lists about 60,000 Austrian Jews deported to various camps.


ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

We owe our most sincere gratitude to Peter Lande without whose effort this information would not be available to you today.
