About Irma Tolar
Irma Tolarová was born in Liteň, Czech Republic, on January 23, 1887, to Mathilde Zeckendorf Bullavy (or Bulowa) and Leopold Bullavy (or Bulowa). Her naming ceremony was held in the Liteň Synagogue on January 31. On examining her birth record on badatelna.cz, I noticed a marginal note, written in modern hand, in the Czech language. On submitting an image of the note to JewishGen's ViewMate, I received three translations, from Jan Hellmann, Hanuš Grab, and Julius Müller, summarized as follows: "Per decision of the People's Court in Říčany on the day 7/10-1952, the inscribed child was declared dead on 28/7-1943 and it is assumed that she has not survived. Noted on 28th february 1953 in Říčany, [name illegible], representative of the record keeper."
Further search by Hanuš Grab reveals that Irma married Mr. Tolar (identity to be determined) and they lived in the town of Radošovice, House No. 143. On July 13, 1942, Irma was transported from Prague to Terezín on Transport Aaq, as Prisoner No. 465. Then on July 28, 1942, she was transported from Terezín to Baranoviche Extermination Camp in Belarus, as Prisoner No. 701 of 999 prisoners who were transported. All were murdered. Note that the date of her final transport is exactly one year before the assumed and declared death date issued from Říčany in 1953, in accordance with Czech law.
