TR 40/2 Under 2nd Section
Aug 24, 2013, 06:40:18 pm

What does the abbrev. TR and the following "40/2" stand for under the "Notes" section in the Lodz Ghetto database records?

Does the meaning change if found in conjunction with AUSG (date) ?

(Please see record for Hersz Herman Gutwilen for exampl).

I found a list of the abbreviations on - TR is the Transport #

The TR is the transport number and the AUSG is the date that they were transported. If you check the secondary sources, the transport date will generally correspond with a camp where the person would have been transported to. Good luck with the searches!
