Neu Stassfurt Forced Labor List
Introduction by Peter Landé
This database contains information on 168 male prisoners sent to the Neu Stassfurt labor camp.
In 1940, 168 male prisoners, mostly or all Jews, were sent from various parts of Germany as forced laborers to Neu Stassfurt, 20 miles south of Magdeburg in Saxony-Anhalt. The list consists of name, date of birth and profession. Some names are crossed out, but it is not clear why, while others contain handwritten notes which are difficult to read. The ultimate fate of these persons is not known, though few, if any, of their names appear in the German Government’s Gedenkbuch. Many are listed as forced laborers in the International Tracing Service (ITS) collection, but their ultimate fate, again, is not given.
This database includes 168 forced laborers. The fields for this database are as follows:
