In the period between June and October 1942, thirteen transports left Vienna (Wien) for Theresienstadt. Each transport consisted of about 1,000 Jewish deportees, most of whom were old and sick. In January 1943, after a break of several months, the deportation of Jews from Vienna was resumed. This time, the transports were relatively smaller in size, each consisting of about 100 people.
