*14.03.1897 in Ostrolenka
A tailor by trade, he moved to Fulda in 1919 and lived at Florengasse 27. On February 10, 1933, he married Anna Bechler and both moved to Rosengasse 1.
In February 1940 Baruch Berkowicz tried to emigrate to Palestine, but he was deported to Poland on April 5th, 1940 and has been missing since then.
As student group, we would like to remember the murdered people in particular on their birthdays, starting in February 2021. With many victims we do not know when they were torn from life, but on a birthday we can think specifically of this one person and show him or her and the families that this person has not been forgotten.
For this reason we label a stone with the name and the birthday. Sometimes we’re even lucky enough to have a photo of the person so we can look into his and her eyes.
We do not forget you!
