Promise Project - First Transport to Auschwitz - Slovakia
created by hdune Mail
Slovakia - March 23-25, 1942
RENA'S PROMISE is working to chronicle the women on the 1st Jewish Transport to Auschwitz. Since 2012, when all we had was a list of 22 names, we now have all 998 thanks to Yad Vashem. While many of these young women, 297 of whom were teenagers, disappeared forever and we may never have pictures or stories to go with their names, slowly but surely we are finding more information and with the help of their families can share it here for future generations to remember the women of the First Transport to Auschwitz. This information has been gathered with the help of the USC Shoah Foundation, family and survivors' memories, and historical records. For more information please visit www.renaspromise.com

We are attempting to find the names of all the young women on the first transport, their registration numbers, and where they were living at the time of the first transport.

The original records of the first transports were destroyed in an attempt to erase these women from history. The first transport left the Poprad train station at 8pm on March 25, 1942 and arrived in Auschwitz on March 26, 1942. The women and girls who survived were in Auschwitz until the Death March in Jan. 1945 and many were not liberated until April or May--over 3 years in the camps.
