About Ilse Zimmer

  • Date of birth identified in Siegfried Wolf. Juden in Thüringen 1933-1945: Biographische Daten. (2000), vol 2 (unpaginated)
  • Different databases have different info regarding Ilse's birthplace: Wolf identifies "Cham". In 2023, the entry in the German National Archives, Memorial Book, identifies Cham in Bavaria as her birthplace (see below). The deportation list id's "Cham" as birthplace, with Ilse id'ed as a citizen of the Deutsches Reich. However, the Yad Vashem database has the following entry: "Jlse Zimmer was born in Chan, Ukraine (USSR) in 1925. She was a hausgehilfin. Prior to WWII she lived in Eisenach, Germany. During the war she was in Eisenach, Germany. Jlse was murdered in the Shoah." "This information is based on a List of persecuted persons found in List of Jews from Thuringia deported 10/05/1942."
  • Identified as daughter of Berta (née Klein) Zimmer, see Wolf. Available records do not identify a father. On the deportation list of 10 May 1942, Bertha Zimmer, geb. Klein is identified as a widow.
  • Ilse and her mother lived in Eisenach from 1938 until 1942. [Source: Wolf]
