The Lost Transport
Consists of copies of articles and booklets regarding the "Lost Transport," which carried Jews from Bergen-Belsen in the direction of Theresienstadt from Apr. 10 to 23, 1945. The few survivors of this transport were discovered and liberated by the Red Army in the yard of a coal factory near Tröbitz, Germany, on Apr. 23, 1945. During the transport, which was infected with typhus, the dead were buried along the train tracks at each stop. The train was frequently the target of bombings; the train was stopped for two days near Schipkau, Germany, from Apr. 19 to 20 due to a bombed-out bridge. Includes a booklet containing a name list of "Lost Transport" victims.
