Izak Arpels has been deported from Mechelen to Auschwitz with Convoy XXI, which departed 31 July and arrived in Auschwitz on 2 August 1943. The Memorial of the Deportation of the Belgian Jews documented that only 40 persons of this transport have survived the Holocaust. Official documents of death are not available. Therefore it is assumed that Izak Arpels on arrival on 2 Augusat 1943 immediately has been killed.
