  1. In that book there is also a memorial book for the transports of Poles to Auschwitz from Krakow and other Polish cities 1940-1944

    Thanks for the quick reply! Does this also apply for “non-Jewish” Deceased?
    I have just seen, There is also a book on the subject:

    Book of Remembrance: Transports of Poles to Auschwitz from Krakow and other Polish city of southern 1940-1944 [Memorial Book: Transports of Poles to Auschwitz from Cracow and Other Localities in Southern Poland 1940-1944]

    Maybe I'll find it here already!
    Best Regards

  3. Often the first approach to a biography of a so-called commemorative page. The Israeli memorial “Yad Vashem” for example, has been collecting 50 Years, the name and biographical data. These are based on so-called Pages of Testimony, which were completed by survivors and descendants. Meanwhile, lists of offerings and memorial books have been digitized and available online (as described in the individual links)

    Is there actually a possibility – e.g.. in a book publication – Find people on to, ims of life in Auschwitz, which have come? There may be publicly available sources and research findings?
    My great-aunt died in Auschwitz. On my last visit I could see her photo in one of the buildings (among them were also living their data warehouse and the number).
    I would be interested, what experiences have other family researchers with the subject.
    Thank you in advance for the help!
