Malka Badner, a Polish Jew, arrived in Belgium before the First World War, in 1912. Jozef Markus Langenauer arrived later. Also a Polish Jew, he came from Vienna in 1923. Their first child, Isidoor, was born in Antwerp in 1924. Rosa and Frieda were born in Antwerp in 1927 and 1930 respectively. Although their names were in the register of Antwerp Jaws in Lange Leemstraat, an area targeted by the raids, they were only arrested on 8 October 1942. Josef Markus Langenauer, a merchant by profession, was then 43, the same age as his wife Malka Badner. Isidoor, a trainee primary school teacher for the Jewish schools, was 18 years old. Rosa was 14 and Frieda 11.
Deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau after a two-day stay in the Dossin Barracks, they left no trace other than their names on the transport list of Transport 13.
