|místo:||Brno Main Train Station, platform 5|
On November 16, 1945, the first large transport with the marking F left Brno.After humiliating procedures lasting several days in the cleaned-out school on Merhautova Street, when the citizens became definitively mere numbers, a thousand Jews were secretly taken by tram in the early morning hours to the fifth platform of Brno's main station. There they were forced to board a train bound for war-torn Minsk.
On the 82nd anniversary of this event, we will commemorate their memory by the public reading of the names of those who were deported from Brno on the first transport. Come and join in the reading at the Memorial to the Disappeared, which has been installed by the Jewish Community of Brno as part of the second annual ŠTETL FEST.
