3 In the literature there are informations that this transport was sent not to Izbica but to Sobibor.
From end of May 1942 most of the transports which came to Lublin district went to Sobibor, after the selection in the Old Airfield Camp where young men were selected and sent to Majdanek for work.
This transport included a big group (about 300 persons) of menthal ill patients from some psychiatric hospital near Aachen.
Among them was Dr. Harry Davidsohn who was the psychiatric. A famous author of the German performances and during the war menthal patient.
For the Germans it made no sense sending them to the transit ghettos. Official destination (according to the Gestapo records) was Izbica.
