Békéscsaba, Hungary Holocaust Victims

Introduction by Gábor Hirsch

Searching the Database


The data set consists of two components: (1) the 1945-1951 register "halálesetfelvételi nyilvántartás" (death case register) the death declaration of Jews died in the times of the persecution and (2) I added the names I found on-line in "Family Search's" Death Register. By visiting the commemoration in my hometown of Békéscsaba, I made a side trip to the county archive in Gyula and during my visits I collected the names of some 833 Holocaust victim.

Sample Register #1

Sample Register #2

The list I am presenting contains less than the half of the about 2000 victims of Békéscsaba, as I realized, several names are missing, even from my close relatives. For instance, my uncle declared his wife dead, but not his 7 years old son József and his 3-month old Péter. My surviving cousin hasn't declared her father and mother, I have no explanation for the reason.


This data set consists of 833 entries. The fields for this database are as follows:

  • Surname
  • Given name
  • Age or Year of Birth
  • Gender
  • Father’s Surname
  • Father’s Given Name
  • Mother’s Surname
  • Mother’s Given Name
  • Wife’s Surname
  • Wife’s Given Name
  • Date of Death
  • Place of Death
  1. Gyula archive records – In the register "halalesetfelveteli nyilvantartas" (death case register) the date 29-Jun-1944 and Auschwitz are listed as the date and place of death. This is the date when the transport arrived in Auschwitz.
  2. In the Death Register from Family Search, "Gázmérgezés, Auschwitz 1944" (Gas poisoning Auschwitz 1944) is generally found as a comment on the record.
