Frieda lived in Gross Strehlitz and was deported from Gleiwitz to Auschwitz concentration camp on 28/05/1942.


Also at Bahnhofstrasse 25 were
- Selma Wienskowitz geb. Karliner, born 08/03/1879, who I speculate is Frieda's sister; a death certificate on shows that Selma was the widow of Hugo Wienskowitz (07/05/1873 - 25/05/1940);
- Oskar Wienskowitz born 24/04/1858 and
- Fanny Wienskowitz geb. Lewy born 28/11/1865.

Oskar and Fanny's cards show the same three addresses from 1915 to 1942, so I assume they were husband and wife.

All four cards are stamped "28.5.1942", the date of the transport from Gleiwitz to Auschwitz concentration camp, so I assume all four people shared the same fate.
