Békéscsaba, Hungary Holocaust Victims
Introduction by Gábor Hirsch
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.
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:
