Bytom (Poland)

Beuthen (Germany)

50 kms south of Czechochowa,

157.8 miles SW of Warsaw

Beuthen , Upper Silesia, Germany, now Bytom , Poland, had over 3,500 Jewish inhabitants prior to World War II.
Many fled, but nearly a thousand Jews were deported to unspecified destinations in May and June 1942.

The following list, probably prepared originally by the Gestapo in 1942, consists of the family and given names of 982 deportees as well as the page and line numbers the names appear in the original address. No further information on these individuals is given in the original material, other than street which has not been computerized.

Researchers seeking further information on individuals, such as date and place of birth, may wish to use the May 1939 census for Beuthen, which can be ordered from the LDS Family History Centers.

The material is currently available at Yad Vashem and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (Microfiche RG-15.030*01).

If researchers wish to have copies of particular pages, they may write to Peter Lande and copies will be sent to them.
