In June 1942, when the first deportation from Königsberg to Minsk took place, it was about as hot as in those June days. Anyway, eyewitnesses report that when they said goodbye to their relatives and friends to the trains. Among them were also the inhabitants of the house in the former Hoffmannstr. 18th / corner Selkestr. It was regarded as one of the so-called “Judenhäuser” (Jew houses) in the Vorderen Vorstadt. Today trees stand at the place of this house. We remember them: Bernhard Benjamin, Ludwig Laserstein, Rosalie Laserstein, Clara Moses and David Aron.
