Zelik Sztuden and Rosalie Luxberg were deported from the Dossin Barracks in Mechelen to Auschwitz-Birkenau where they were murdered. Both their children survived the war.
On 24 February 1939, the refugee story of the Berenblum family begins, with parents Abraham Berenblum and Maria Freimowski and daughters Sonja and Rosa.
This family of Polish Jews fled from Germany to Belgium in 1939. The father, aged 47 when he was deported, worked as a commercial traveller. The mother, Ester Neugebohr, a 38-year-old housewife, looked after her three younger children with the help of her oldest daughter, Hilda Charlotte, 21.
The boy was 13 in August 1942, his mother 38. There were three other children, Isaac, 2, Oskar, 8, old and Charlotte, 10, in this family of Polish Jews.
Nisen Karolinski and Tauba Hena Makofka emigrated in 1929. They were accompanied by their seven children, all born in Warsaw.
