Victor Bilous, born on 26.1.1944 in Hamburg, died on 11.3.1944
Essener Straße 54 (formerly camp Tannenkoppel, Weg 4, also called "Tarpenbek = Forced labor camp of the armaments industry in Hamburg Langenhorn)
Victor Bilous was born in Hamburg on January 26, 1944. His mother Marija Iwanowna Bilous, born on November 25, 1924 in Nesterowka/Krs. Dungiewici, was of Greek Orthodox faith and single. Deported from her native Ukraine, she was registered as a "farm laborer" and initially had to perform forced labor in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg for the Howaldtswerke (M. A. N.) engine plant in Hamburg. She had been housed in the Langer Morgen camp since July 3, 1943. One day before the birth of her child, 19-year-old Marija Bilous was admitted to the Finkenau Women's Clinic in Hamburg-Uhlenhorst.
Nine days after giving birth, on February 3, 1944, she and her son Victor were released to the Tannenkoppel camp, Weg Nr. 4, Hamburg-Langenhorn, and put to work as forced laborers at Hanseatische Kettenwerk GmbH (HAK). Victor had to spend the short time of his life in the forced labor camp Tannenkoppel. The nutritional and living conditions were completely inadequate for him.
Victor died there at 7:00 a.m. on March 11, 1944. The "Rechnungsführer" (accountant) Erwin Meinke reported the death verbally. In the death register the cause of death is given as "Intoxication bei Darmkatarrh" (poisoning during intestinal inflammation).
Victor was 1 month and 10 days old.
Nine days after his death, he was buried on March 20, 1944 in Ohlsdorf Cemetery, grave location: Q 39, row 1, no. 28. At the end of 1959, the grave was dissolved together with at least 146 graves of children of forced laborers in area Q 39. Only eight of the graves had their remains moved to Z 35, and four to Bp 74.
Victor's remains were placed in the collective grave Z 35, row 8, no. 35, registered in the grave book under "Military" on July 7, 1959, together with those of three unknown dead. A gravestone with his name and date of birth and death carved on it still commemorates him there.
Until January 12, 1945 Marija Iwanowna Bilous is registered in Langenhorn.
