The Holocaust Documentation Centre (DSH) and the Slovak National Archive (SNA) have presented research results on May 5 that further document the Holocaust in Slovakia. Historians presented lists with the names of about 2,700 people who were imprisoned in the Sereď concentration camp from November 19, 1944 until March 30, 1945, the TASR newswire wrote.

Until this finding, historians were convinced that the commander of the concentration camp, Alois Brunner, who had restarted the deportations from Slovakia after the country was occupied by German troops, had destroyed the documentation before he disappeared in March 1945.

The records found by the historians describe the last tragic chapter of the Holocaust in Slovakia and they significantly add to the knowledge of its history. Important international authorities in Holocaust research, such as the Yad Washem museum and research centre in Israel and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington have already expressed their interest in the documents, TASR reported.
