These are but a few of the more than five hundred names excerpted from the book
History of the Jewish Community of Schneidemühl: 1641 to the Holocaust

They became ensnared in the Nazi web in and around Schneidemühl between 1940 and 1943,
but their fate has been researched and ascertained, they are not forgotten.

ABRAHAM, Fritze, née Gabbe. Born 13 July 1869 in Prechlau. Fritze Abraham was living in Schneidemühl, Neue Bahnhofstr.7 at the time of the 1939 census. During the Aktion of 21 February 1940, she was arrested and held in the Jewish community building in Schneidemühl. On 2 July she was taken to Berlin to stay with relatives (Abraham) at Höchstestr. 51. Her confiscated savings account amounted to 329 Reichsmark. On 8 September 1942, as prisoner No. 6311, she was deported with the 59th Alterstransport No. I/61 to Theresienstadt, where she perished four months later on 8 January 1943.

ABRAHAM, Max. Born 29 April 1894 in Tempelburg. Max Abraham was arrested during the Aktion of 21 February 1940 and deported to the labor camp Radinkendorf the following day. He was later sent to Schönfelde for forestry work. Together with his wife Hanna, Max Abraham perished in the Warsaw ghetto in 1944.

ALEXANDER, Gertrud, née Philippsborn. Born 28 November 1900 in Tempelburg. Gertrud Alexander, daughter of Julius and Elsa Philippsborn, was most likely arrested in Torgelow, Pomerania, during the Aktion of 21 February 1940 and detained in the Jewish community building in Schneidemühl. From there she was deported the following day to the labor camp Neuendorf. She was then sent to Berlin and allowed to stay with relatives (Philippsborn) at Klopstockstr. 23 until she was taken to the Jewish Hospital in Berlin. Her name subsequently appeared on a list covering the period 15 August–15 September 1940, suggesting that she was again sent to the labor camp Neuendorf. Her last known address was Jakobsdorf, a small town in Pomerania, where she did forestry work. She was eventually deported with the 37th Osttransport to Auschwitz on 19 April 1943.

ALEXANDER, Zippora. Born 9 February 1882 in Lobsens. Zippora Alexander was living in Schneidemühl, Zeughausstr. 5 at the time of the 1939 census. During the Aktion of 21 February 1940, she was arrested, detained in the Bürgergarten in Schneidemühl and later sent to the labor camp Radinkendorf. Her name subsequently appeared on a list of the Reichsvereinigung (16 July and 15 August 1940), suggesting that she was sent to the Jewish community refugee home in Berlin, Gipsstr.12a, formerly the building that housed the orthodox rabbinical seminary. On 26 June 1942, she was deported with transport No. I/12 to Theresienstadt and at an unknown later date deported to Auschwitz.

ALTMANN, Leo. Born 3 August 1879 in Deutsch Krone. Leo Altmann, a butcher by profession, was arrested during the Aktion of 21 February 1940 and detained in the Jewish community building in Schneidemühl. On 11 March, he was deported to Transit Camp Głowna in Poznan where he remained until 6 April when he was sent by bus with Judentransportgruppe No. 474 to the so-called Jüdisches Umschulungslager in Bielefeld. On 10 December, he was sent to Berlin, Christburgerstr. 16, to stay with relatives (Alexander Altmann or Hirsch); this was his last known address. Before he was deported to Auschwitz on 7 November 1942, his confiscated savings account amounted to 397 Reichsmark.

ALTMANN, Max. Born 20 July 1871 in Dreidorf. Max Altmann was living in Schneidemühl, Friedrichstr.7/I at the time of the 1939 census.

Between the dates of 16 July and 15 August 1940, he was sent to the labor camp Neuendorf. One month later, he was taken to the Jewish community refugee home in Berlin, Weinbergsweg 13, possibly his last known address in Berlin, where he subsequently died on 3 November 1942. His confiscated savings account amounted to 1,141 Reichsmark. He was buried in the Jewish cemetery in Berlin-Weissensee.
