    Josef Hirschhorn was born on February 5, 1926 in Oradea, Romania, to Martin and Irene (née Seidmann) Hirschhorn. In 1944, a few years after Oradea had been re-incorporated into Hungary and re-named Nagyvárad, he was deported from Nagyvárad to Sachsenhausen, where he was assigned prisoner number 80777. He is presumed to have died in Sachsenhausen.
