Theresienstadt Arrival & Death Certificates, Minna & Max Lederman

Subject

Theresienstadt, 1942 and 1943

Description

The German authorities deported Minna "Sara" Ledermann (née Brüll), Peter's grandmother, from Arnstadt, Germany, to Theresienstadt on October 18, 1942. Less than three months later, Minna died in the ghetto-camp at the age of 69.

Peter's grandfather, Max "Israel" Ledermann, also deported to Theresienstadt, died at 75, several days after his wife, Minna. Between 1941 and 1945, over 35,000 Jews died in the ghetto-camp of starvation, disease, and labor exploitation. The German authorities deported over 88,000 Jews from Theresienstadt to ghettos and killing centers in Eastern Europe.
