Two partial lists (only 70 names total) of Jews deported from Ostrava, Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic) and vicinity in October 1939, collected by Holocaust survivor Otto Winecki. List 1 gives birthdate and place and occupation, List 2 gives date deported, place of residence for some individuals, and date and place of death for others. The October 1939 Ostrava deportations are notable as having been among the first such mass deportations of Jews. In fact, their purpose was to gather experience for the evacuation of much greater numbers. The deported from Ostrava were sent to a "transit camp" to be located (once built by the inmates) in Zarzecze near Nisko, Poland on the San River.
