Theresienstadt Arrivals List
Introduction by Peter Absolon
In April 1945, about 4,500 women, whose last address before deportation was Hungary and its annexed territories, were driven to Theresienstadt. They came from different camps and Markkleeberg was one of them. When they arrived they were requested to register, but some were too sick to give information about themselves. Thus, names may be missing from the list.
Some women changed their dates of birth to make themselves younger or older in order to receive “zulage”, an additional portion of food. The majority however, did give their real age.
The list of inmates arriving Theresienstadt at the end of the war is available in: the archives of Buchenwald, Germany; the Central State archive in Prague, Czech Republic; and Theresienstadt Martyrs Remembrance Association, Givat Haim-Ihud, Israel.
This database contains 685 names of Markkleeberg inmates reaching Theresienstadt (Terezín) after the Death March on April 29, 1945. The fields for this database are as follows:
The list and the information above can be found in ZahavaSzász Stessel: Snow Flowers: Hungarian Jewish Women in an Airplane Factory, Markkleeberg, Germany.
