The Hessian transports to the extermination camps took place on 25.3.1942 (1000 persons) to Piaski in Poland, and on 27.9.1942 (1268 persons) to Theresienstadt, the so-called “Alterstransport”. The trains departed from Mainz / Darmstadt in each case. Piaski served only as a transit camp to the extermination sites of the Lublin district. And those who survived the overcrowded Theresienstadt were sent to Auschwitz.
