Ebensee Survivors

Introduction by Peter Landé

Searching the Database


In 1998, Rabbi Sidney Hercztach gave the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum a typed list of 678 male Czech Ebensee prisoners dated May 18, 1945.  (Ebensee was liberated May 9, 1945).  The information consisted of names, concentration camp numbers, age, place of birth and "date of entry and release".  These dates range from 1943 to May 1945 (most in 1945), and, given the nature of this list, I assume that all survived.  Judging by the names, most or all the persons listed were Jewish.  The legibility of the list varies and town names are spelled in various way.

The Austrian authorities responsible for Mauthausen (Ebensee was a sub-camp) did not have this list and a copy has been sent to them.


This database includes 678 prisoners from the Ebensee camp.  The fields for this database are as follows:

  • Surname
  • Given Name
  • Prisoner Number
  • Age
  • Place of Birth
  • Date of Entry/Release


The information contained in this database was indexed from the files of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (RG 19.027 and AA0053).  The list was prepared by Peter Landé and Helen Gill.

In addition, thanks to JewishGen Inc. for providing the website and database expertise to make this database accessible.  Special thanks to Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias for their continued contributions to Jewish genealogy.  Particular thanks to Nolan Altman, coordinator of Holocaust files.
