The transport left Strasshof an der Nordbahn, located 25 kilometers outside of Vienna (Wien) on March 8, 1945, and arrived in Theresienstadt on the same day. The transport consisted of 1,073 Jews from the Hungarian provinces who had been employed as forced laborers in the greater Vienna area, as well as in other provinces of Austria, including Niederdonau. The approaching Red Army forced the German authorities to evacuate Jewish prisoners from the areas near the front lines.
