Edited by Dr. Linde Apel on behalf of the Department of Culture, Sports and Media, in cooperation with the Hamburg Contemporary History Research Center and the Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial.

Between 1940 and 1945, twenty deportation trains departed from Hannoverscher Bahnhof. With them went 7692 Jews, Roma and Sinti from Hamburg and northern Germany, destined for the ghettos and extermination camps of central and eastern Europe. The vast majority did not return. This made Hannoverscher Bahnhof the last sight these Hamburg citizens had of their hometown, before being sent to their deaths.
