Israel Buitekant was interned in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Shortly before liberation a train carrying 2,000 prisoners, mainly Jewish, left for Theresienstadt. The train spent 14 days travelling through Germany, and many passengers died on the journey. Finally, it came to a halt near the small village of Tröbitz, where Allied troops liberated the surviving passengers. Israel Buitekant did not survive the journey. He was buried in the nearby town of Falkenburg [modern-day Złocieniec], together with other victims.
