Background

This database was created from a transport list of Jews transported to Gross Rosen from south Belgium and northern France.

From the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, “The Gross-Rosen concentration camp was originally established in 1940 as a subcamp of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. The camp was named for the nearby village of Gross-Rosen. Now called Rogoznica, the village is approximately 40 miles southwest of Wroclaw in present-day western Poland. In 1941, Gross-Rosen was designated an autonomous concentration camp.”
