Background

There were 4,161 Jews living in Szeged in 1941. After the German occupation (March 19, 1944), the Jews were confined to a ghetto with the Jews from surrounding villages.

On June 25, 27, and 28, 1944, the Szeged ghetto was liquidated. Three trains, containing approximately 8,500 people, departed from Szeged, Hungary. The first train went to Auschwitz where most of the people were murdered. The second train was uncoupled, with half going to Auschwitz and half ending at the Strasshof Labor Camp outside of Vienna. The third train went to Strasshof, where some of the people survived.

The information contained in this database was made available through cataloging, indexing and digitization projects of the entire Szeged Jewish Community archive in 2018-2019. The database contains all Jewish residents of Szeged who had an address there. It does not list Jews living in surrounding towns.

Beside this list, the Szeged Jewish Community also holds records of survivors, ca. 1,700 individual index cards.
