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 Szeged Jewish Community created index cards by family of approximately 1,700 survivors. This database has been created from those index cards which were found in July 2018. Note: Angle brackets do not contain any text on the card, an addition that was made on the basis of other external sources or other charts. Question mark in square brackets: refers to non-readable or non-comprehensible text.
