Sachsenhausen Arrivals and Departures
Translations

These tables are intended to be used as a translation guide for two fields in the Sachsenhausen Arrivals and Departures Database.  The data in the left column of the first table represents the contents of the field Reasons for Imprisonment.  The second table represents the contents of the field Actions Taken.  Because the transcribers were provided with instructions to transcribe the data exactly as it appeared, the data will include spelling errors and any other mistakes that may have been made when the information was originally documented.
