    Little is known about Ludwig Stern, other than that he was a native of Giessen, Germany, who was deported from that city in the summer of 1942, first to a collection point in Darmstadt, and following that to Theresienstadt, where Stern spent the next three years, until his liberation from that camp in May 1945. He appears to have returned to Giessen in the spring or summer of 1945.
