About Romania, Jews of Dés (Dej) in the Ghettoization of May, 1944

Details from this database were extracted from 131 pages listing Jewish residents in Dés (Dej), Romania, before they were moved to a ghetto and then deported in May 1944. Records are similar to a U.S. census, with residents linked to a head of household.

  • house number
  • name
  • title
  • year of birth
  • place of birth

Hungarian naming conventions added "né" to the end of the husband's first name. For example "Rosenczewig, Enéné" should be interpreted as "Mrs. Edén Rosenczweig". For these records, you may find the wife's name in the Comments field preceded by "sz." as well as in the Other Surname field.
