The selected biographies depict persecuted persons who were detained in Breitenau during the Nazi period for their political or religious beliefs, or based on anti-Semitic, racist or social reasons. We would like to commemorate these people and make their fates known. The submission of personal memories, pictures and documents is very much welcomed. We invite you - relatives, friends and researchers - to join us in collecting these biographies and filling in the blanks around these persons’ lives and persecution paths.
