Hungarian Women Transport List From Auschwitz to Buchenwald October 14, 1944


This is a set of 200 Hungarian women sent late in the war from Auschwitz to Buchenwald. Many of these names already appear as prisoners/forced laborers in the Junkers plant, in Markleeburg, near Leipzig, a subcamp of Buchenwald.

As the Russians approached and the labor shortage inside Germany continued, the Germans found it useful to ship relatively healthy/young prisoners westward. These were often Hungarian, who were late "arrivals" in Auschwitz

Additional information on these women can be found in other Buchenwald material.

For additional information, please see "Snow Flowers: Hungarian Jewish Women in an Airplane Factory, Markkleeberg" by Zahava Szász Stessel. You can find it online at:
