 Gurs, Francia, Deportazioni ad Auschwitz-Birkenau, 1942-1943

Queste raccolte contengono i nomi di circa 2000 persone che furono deportate dal campo di internamento di Gurs ad Auschwitz-Birkenau nel periodo 1942-1943.

Located in the South of France, the Gurs Internment Camp was the largest in the area and became the home of Jews from France, Baden in Germany, and other Jewish refugees from central Europe after the Statute on Jews was issued in October 1940. Beginning in August 1942 and continuing until March 1943, six convoys took thousands of internees from Gurs to the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. Originally published in the Aufbau Newspaper, the records in this collection contain the names and former residence of some of those deported.
