Tana DRUT - in Bamberg, Germany,in 1948 aged 5

Our knowledge is sketchy:

Fella Feiga DRUT was born on 6 April 1923 in Rowno.

Her parents were Barbara Margarethe (maiden name unknown) and Schija DRUT.

The family lived in Dresden, Germany. at Konkordienstrasse 68.

In 1938 the Family is supposed to have moved to Mannheim and Wuerzburg.

Fella Feiga DRUT was arrested for the crime of “Race Shame” (Rassenschande).

She was sent to Ravensbrueck where she is recorded in 1939.

Her exact fate is unclear.

It is possible that she returned to Dresden once more and was then transported with the "Judenlagers Hellerberg" Transport on the night from 2 to 3 March 1943 to Auschwitz. That was the transport which overnight cleared Dresden of all its Jews.

Because Fella Feiga DRUT was pregnant she was possibly held back and on 21 June 1943 deported to Theresienstadt (Terezin) on Transport number V/9, where her daughter Tana DRUT was born on 9 November 1943.

Both mother and daughter were liberated from the camp.

The father Schija DRUT (born 1891) was said to have been arrested in Dresden in 1939. Nothing further is known about him. The mother Margarethe DRUT is supposed to have emigrated.

Fella Feiga DRUT and her daughter Tana DRUT are supposed to have been in Dresden once more after 1945.

That is all we know.

We realize that some of the facts and dates above appear to contradict.
We state them all, as we have no way of knowing which part is inaccurate.
It is unlikely that in early March 1943 the authorities will have known that Fella Feiga DRUT was pregnant.

Do you recognize any of this?

Can you guide us in any way?

If you have no information, do you know of anyone else, anywhere, where we can ask?
