Josef Trakatsch's date of death

Door: rpm_bln

Josef Trakatsch is listed in the "Death Books of Auschwitz" (KG Saur, 1995) as having prisoner number 23357 and 21 August 1942 as his date of death. Auschwitz prisoners listed in this book were not gassed upon arrival but instead recruited for forced labour at Monowitz or another section of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp complex. If the date of death listed above is derived from the date of deportation, then Josef probably survived little more than a month after his arrival in Auschwitz.
