About Germany, Data on 7,400 North Bavarian Jews

After the end of World War II, when United States military authorities occupied and administered large parts of southern Germany, including Bavaria, an effort was made to document the fate of the former Jewish residents of Bavaria. A part of this material, relating to much of northern Bavaria, was located in the Captured German Records Collection held at the United States National Archives and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. 7,407 names were computerized by 10 volunteers from GerSIG, the German Special Interest Group of JewishGen. The material itself is held in collection RG1996 A0342, reels 5 and 6 at the Museum.

What is in the Database:

The collection includes information on persons who emigrated from Bavaria as well as those who were deported and murdered. The fields are:

  • Family name

  • Maiden name

  • Given name

  • Place of birth

  • Town of Residence

  • Street address

  • Emigration/deportation

  • Date of emigration/deportation

  • Destination of emigration/deportation

  • Title of person

All information contained in this collection has been included. Where a question mark appears it means that a question mark appeared in the original material. Researchers interested in obtaining more information on persons named in this collection, and still resident in Germany in 1939, may wish to examine the May 1939 census material available at LDS Family History libraries.
