The towns of Moson and Magyaróvár were united 1939 forming Mosonmagyaróvár. Mosonmagyaróvár is currently located in western Hungary and lies 15 kilometers from the Austrian border next to the highway and railway line to Vienna-Budapest, by the confluence of the Moson-Danube and Lajta rivers. The town is bordered by Hanság on the west and Szigetköz on the east.

The Mosonmagyarovar ghetto was established on May 15-17 and on May 26 over 900 Jews from the surrounding area were also forced to move into it. On June 6 all Jews were transferred from there to a larger ghetto in the district capital of Gyor and from there over 5,600 Jews were sent to Auschwitz in two transports on June 11 and 14, 1944.

At the end of April 1944, Mr. Frischmann the head of the Jewish community, was ordered by the Hungarian authorities to produce the list shown in this file. This list of 395 Jews may be slightly higher than the actual number of Jews who were collected, since it includes the names of Jews who had previously been sent to work details away from the area. The material consists of family and given names, mother?s maiden names (the usual way that Hungarian names are compiled) a nd local address.


This database includes 395 names of individuals who were transported from Mosonmagyaróvár to Auschwitz. The fields for this database are as follows:

The Comments field generally includes the title "Dr." for medical doctors and "özv." for widows.

Note regarding search results: Since the original source document grouped individuals by family group at each address, when performing a search for any one individual will return information for all individuals grouped together per the source document.


The information contained in this database was indexed from the Randolph Braham collection of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM File RG 52.001M, reel 85).
