1944

Three hundred fifty-one Gypsies of Belgian, French, Dutch,
German, and Norwegian nationality are included in the twenty-
third deportation convoy from the Belgian transit camp of
Malines (in Flemish, Mechelen) to Auschwitz. There are
thirteen Roma (Gypsy) survivors after the war. The same
transport includes 657 Belgian-Jewish deportees, of whom 140
men and 98 women survive initial selection on the ramp at
Auschwitz-Birkenau. (USHMM, 1994. Pg. 25)
