Background

The question of how to treat “Mischlingen”, i.e. persons with some Jewish and some non-Jewish parentage, was a difficult question for Hitler’s Germany to decide.  Treatment of individuals varied in different locales and at different times.  By 1944, policy hardened with many Mischlingen sent to forced labor camps.  One of these was located in Sitzensdorf in Thuringia.

This compilation of 203 male survivors found at Sitzendorf was apparently prepared shortly after the end of the war.  Most were Germans but there were also Dutch, Belgian and French survivors.  The information consists solely of names and dates of birth.  However, there is considerable further postwar information relating to most of these persons in the International Tracing Service (ITS) collection.
