2. Deportation der Juden (WürzburgWiki, in German). "The fate of the 202 Würzburg children, women and men can only be approximately reconstructed. Many froze or starved in the winter of 1941-42, others were shot dead on 26.03.1942 in the nearby forest of Bikernieki at open mass graves. 40 persons from Würzburg remained and did forced labor in the Riga area until 1944, before they were brought west again. In the end, 16 people survived this transport, including the two Würzburg boys Herbert Mai and Fred Zeilberger." (Submitted on October 21, 2018.)
