Holocaust Victims and Survivors in Edith's Family Tree


Many of those found in Edith's family tree were killed in the Holocaust. Some of them were known to us and many more were identified through research. To honour their memory, their details are provided here:


Details of those who are known to have survived are provided here:

As of January 2023, a further 500+ individuals are known to have survived but the circumstances of their survival are yet to be determined.


A list of deportations Edith's relatives were transported on from the 'Rheinland' regions of Germany and from the Netherlands is available here. Further deportation details will be added to this list over time.


I use the term 'victim' not only for individuals who are known to have been murdered but also those who are known to have committed suicide or died of other causes directly related to Nazi persection between 1933 and 1945.

Where the place of death of a victim is not the official but the likely place of death, as determined from information available about a transport, the likely place is provided in the lists of individuals.

My use of the term 'survivor' aligns with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's definition:

"Holocaust survivors are Jews who experienced the persecution and survived the mass murder that was carried out by the Nazis and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945. This included those who were in concentration camps, killing centers, ghettos, and prisons, as well as refugees or those in hiding. Holocaust survivors also include people who did not self-identify as Jewish, but were categorized as such by the perpetrators." (Source: https://www.ushmm.org/remember/holocaust-survivors)
