Vladimir Bowton, born on 6.4.1944 in Hamburg, died on 5.10.1944
Essener Straße 54 (formerly camp Tannenkoppel, Weg 4, also called "Tarpenbek = Forced labor camp of the armaments industry in Hamburg Langenhorn)
Vladimir Bowton was born in Hamburg on April 6, 1944. His mother Anna Frantschuk, born on July 11, 1915 in Kosijewka/Krs. Charkow, was single and presumably of Russian Orthodox faith, registered as "Orthodox". Deported from her home in Chernikova/Ukraine, she was first sent to Hamburg-Ottensen as an "Eastern worker" to the Hohenzollernring camp, Moortwiete (today Hohenzollernring/corner of Daimlerstraße), "home of the fish industry", on October 16, 1943, when she was in her third month of pregnancy. She had to perform forced labor for the company D. L. Wilkens, Fischräucherei, Friesenweg 5.
In the house registration file, she was considered a "fugitive" since November 17, 1943; according to the registration file for foreigners (Meldekartei Ausländer), she was housed in the forced labor camp at Schloßstraße 27 (today Harburger Schloßstraße) in Hamburg-Harburg, for forced labor for Gesamthafenbetriebsgesellschaft mbH. On February 28, 1944, Anna Frantschuk, heavily pregnant, was transferred to the Tannenkoppel camp, Weg 4, in Hamburg-Langenhorn and put to forced labor at Hanseatische Kettenwerk GmbH (HAK) or Deutsche Meßapparate GmbH (Messap) as a "lathe operator". On her registration card there is the note "German-blooded," which indicates a "race" check during her pregnancy.
On the day her child was born, 30-year-old Anna Frantschuk was admitted to Alsterdorf Hospital. Nine days after the delivery, on April 15, 1944, she returned to the Tannenkoppel camp with her son Vladimir. Vladimir had to spend the short time of his life in this forced labor camp. The nutritional and living conditions were completely inadequate for him there.
Vladimir's father Filiph Bowton, born on November 12, 1920 in Blistawura/Krs. Kiev, was a forced laborer at Phoenix AG, Harburg Rubber Goods Factory, and was housed in the Capellenweg camp as well as in the Sperlsdeich "Eastern Workers' Camp" (today Sperlsdeicher Weg), Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg.
When Vladimir was five months old, his parents Anna Frantschuk and Filiph Bowton were married on September 8, 1944, and the marriage was registered at the Harburg registry office. The religious affiliation was stated as "evgl. luther." (protestant) After the marriage, Vladimir's father Filiph Bowton was also transferred to Langenhorn, to the men's camp Tannenkoppel.
A month later, on October 5, 1944, Vladimir died in Langenhorn General Hospital at 7:00 am. The hospital's death notice lists "bronchopneunomy" (pneumonia) as the cause of death and Blumenthal as the signing physician.
Vladimir was 5 months, 4 weeks and 1 day old.
Seven days after his death, on October 12, 1944, his burial took place in the Ohlsdorf cemetery, grave location: Q 39, row 7, no. 34. His grave is no longer preserved. At the end of 1959 it was levelled together with at least 146 graves of children of forced laborers on area Q 39.
