The People

On 9 May 1942, 513 Jewish men, women, and children from 43 locations in Thuringia had to go to assembly points in their respective village, town, or city. They were taken to Weimar by train.

We know the places and the names of those affected from the transport lists that were found in a directory in the archive of the Jewish religious community in Leipzig and can be found in the Arolsen archive. The directory refers to those affected by the first partial transport from Weimar and the surrounding area, which left the city on the morning of 10 May 1942 in the direction of Leipzig.

Here you will find profiles of 43 people who were deported that day, one profile for each location. Profiles are organized by location.
