About Sime Bruche Wilder

She lived with her family at Wien 20, Wallenstrasse 39. Her last known address before her deportation was Wien 20, Wallenstrasse 39/6 (from 10/4/1937 - 9/14/1942), according to IKG Wien.

She was deported on transport 41, number 431 to Maly Trostinec near Minsk on September 14, 1942. After five days journey the victims were taken off the train, killed in the forest of Maly Trostinec, and buried in a mass grave. She probably was unaware that her daughter and son-in-law (Regina Rebeka Gerstl and Emil Gerstl) were deported on the same train on that date.

FROM THE DOEW ARCHIVE: (translation)

After the first phase of deportations from the "kingdom" and the "Protectorate" had found its completion in November 1941 in Minsk, met from May to October 1942 altogether 16 trains with more than 15,000 people from Vienna, Konigsberg, Theresienstadt and Cologne in Minsk one. According to an order of the Chief of the Security Police and the SD Reinhard Heydrich the deportation victims were murdered immediately after arrival. As an execution site a pine grove was a few kilometers away, selected by Good Maly Trostinec, a former collective farm. The sequence of executions followed a consistent scheme, usually including policemen and Waffen SS members from 80 to 100 men were employed . After the arrival of trains at the freight station in Minsk, which occurred mostly early zwischen 4.00 und 7.00 clock, saw a group of the department of KdS for the projection of the newly arrived people and their luggage. Then the new arrivals were driven to a nearby collection point, where another group of the department of KdS was concerned to take off the Jews all money and valuables. At this gathering place were eventually also services members those few people - per transport between 20 and 50 - selected which seemed suitable for forced labor use on the farm Maly Trostinec. From a position located on the edge of the assembly station of loading the deportees were eventually driven on trucks to about 18 km away for mines. This procedure remained unchanged for the first eight transports. As of August 1942, the trains were routed via a dead-end to the immediate vicinity of the property where now discharge and selection took place. Deportees the first transports were shot on the pits. From about the beginning of June 1942, three "gas vans" were used. Of the approximately 9,000 Jews deported to Maly Trostinec Austrian Jews are 17 known survivors.
