The deportation of the Jews of Prague to the Terezin ghetto began in late 1941. One of the deportees was 35-year-old Gerda Baier, who was deported in July 1943. Approximately 88,000 of the 140,000 Jews incarcerated in the Terezin ghetto were deported to the East. Gerda Baier was on one of the last transports. She was murdered in Auschwitz in the fall of 1944.
