Other Holocaust Lists


Envelopes that held letters from Osias Weinbach or his wife, Charlotte or Lotte, written to relatives in the United States in 1939. Osias was born in Zolynia in 1895 and by the late 1930s he was a furrier in Vienna. A cousin in America hired an attorney to facilitate a visa allowing the Weinbachs and their teenaged daughter, Ruth, to go to the United States. Their efforts were unsuccessful. Osias Weinbach died in a camp in Yugoslavia; his name appears below.


A Growing Body of Information

For most Holocaust victims, there are no existing records placing them in a specific place at a specific time. However, more and more documents are being indexed and summarized in online databases.

Below are names from prisoner books and other records that specifically mention people born in the Zolynia Kahal. Some lists may have been prepared hastily; Gustav Lieblich is listed in one record set below as having died at the Mauthausen camp in December 1944, but Gustav Lieblich, born in Zolynia on the same day, appears on a list of survivors found at Mauthausen published by the World Jewish Congress several months later.

Details such as dates have been left in the original indexed formats to facilitate searches:

A-B = Auschwitz-Birkenau Database

AV = Austrian Victims Database

DA = Dachau Database

M-G = Mauthausen/Gusen Death Book Database
