· Searching the Database
Beuthen, Upper Silesia, Germany -- now Bytom, Poland -- had over 3,500 Jewish inhabitants prior to World War II. Many fled, but 982 Jews were deported to unknown destinations in May and June 1942.
This material, probably prepared by the Gestapo, consists of an alphabetical list of deportees, giving family and personal names. No further information on these individuals is given in this material, other than street address, which has not been computerized. Researchers seeking further information on individuals, such as date and place of birth, may wish to use the May 1939 census, which is available at LDS Family History Centers.
The database includes the names of 949 individuals from nine pages of data.
The fields of the database are as follows:
The list is available at Yad Vashem and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (Microfiche RG-15030*01). However, if researchers prefer, and wish to have copies of particular pages, they may write to me, Peter Lande, at 3002 Ordway Street N.W., Washington, D.C. 20008 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
