Wiesbaden Bahnhof

It was from Schlachthoframpe at Wiesbaden central station that almost 300 Jews were deported on three occasions in 1942 to Eastern Europe.

Current status: Preserved with monument (2011).

Location: 50° 03'56.02 N 8° 14'52.51 E

Get there: Metro to Hauptbahnhof Station.

My comment:

The small number of transports and the number of people deported from Wiesbaden may, in comparison with other deportations, seem small and insignificant. But for the people who were deported, they were anything but insignificant because they were part of the Nazis’ racist ambitions to make Europe Jewish-free.
