· Searching the Database
This database contains records for 1,993 persons included in a number of lists from the Baden and Württemberg areas, prepared by the Manheim Jewish community.
This dataset includes a number of smaller lists from Baden and Württemberg areas prepared by the Mannhein Jewish Community. Below are the component databases within this collection.
The Dellmensingen and Herrlingen material consists of Jews to be deported. No specific dates are given but it can be assumed that the deportations took place in 1941/1942.
German Survivors in France
The Mannheim Jewish Community records collection (RG 14.056M) includes a list of Southwest Germany (Baden and the Palatinate) 427 Jews who were deported to France, survived, and, at least immediately, did not return to Germany in 1946. The collection does not include information on their ultimate fate, e.g. remain in France, emigrate elsewhere or return to Germany. Many of these persons were elderly and resident in French hospices.
The information on each individual consists of family and given name and, in most cases, date of birth and location in France. In many cases the last local address in Germany is also given, but this information was not entered in the database. Many, but not all, of the names and information appear in the International Tracing Service (ITS) collection.
List from the Jewish Religious Community in Heidelberg of survivors as of January 17, 1946.
Prepared by the Oberdorf mayor’s office in 1961. As was true all over Germany, when a resident left a locality he/she had to report their departure, a Abmedlung. This also applied to deportees. This list, therefore, contains a mixture of deportees, persons who lived elsewhere in Germany and even a few persons who emigrated while that was still possible.
Ulm Residents — 1935
Ulm, located in southeast Württemberg on the Danube, had a substantial Jewish population until the Nazi period. This list of the Jewish community in Ulm and nearby towns on September 23, 1935 contains information on 485 members.
During World War II, a sub-camp of Dachau was established in Ulm. Ulm was also the site of a number of Displaced Persons (DP) camps after the war.

List of December 1946 Jewish community members in a number of smaller Jewish towns in Baden and the Palatinate. Filmed from the Jewish Community in Mannheim.
