Aims and Scope
The Book of Remembrance contains the names of ca. 31,400 German, Austrian and Czechoslovakian Jews who were deported between 1941 and 1945 to the Baltic region -- to Riga, Kovno and Reval. The names together with the maiden name, date and place of birth, last address and the last sign of life or death of the person concerned, are listed according to the deportations from the various towns and cities. Each transport is accompanied by a text in German and English describing the respective situation of the Jewish population in that region. The routes taken by individual people are included where such information was available. In an introduction in two languages Wolfgang Scheffler summarises the fate of deportees in the Riga Ghetto, in Jungfernhof, Salaspils and in the many labour and concentration camps.
