Trail of Remembrance

Trail of Remembrance

75 years ago, at 6.15pm on the 11 September 1944, an Allied bombing raid took place on the Gelsenberg synthetic oil plant in the heart of the industrial Ruhr Valley in Germany. Their target was the fuel manufacturing plant.

During that raid 150 Hungarian Jewish women, transported there from Auschwitz-Birkenau and kept for forced labour in the Gelsenlager, were killed. The German SS would not allow them into the air raid shelters.

Amongst those women were Jolan and Paula Schwarcz, two of my father’s sisters. They were 18 and 22 years of age.

Today we remember those 150 women, named below, and how their lives were so cruelly denied by fascists with hatred in their hearts.
