Deportees from France exterminated in Concentration Camps
Index Prepared by Mathilde Tagger

According to French law, a French citizen is known as dead only after a death certificate has been issued by the local authority.

In order to regularize the situation of those who died in deportation, a special law was promulgated on May 15, 1985, dealing with death certificates for those who didn't come back from the Nazi camps. These certificates of death have to be issued as a result of a declarative judgment marked with the mention "Dead in Deportation". Then the "Journal Officiel de la Republique Francaise"- the government publication- made these death certificates public.

Today only some 52,000 such declarative judgments have been published including deportees of all religions.

The present index is a compilation of the names of Jews who were born in countries that are part of the Sephardic Diaspora such as: Algeria, Bulgaria, Egypt, Greece, Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey.

For each victim, the index indicates his/her surname, maiden name (if a married woman), birth place and date and assumed place and date of death as inscribed in the judgment.
