Shura Kotschezeschko, born on 21.11.1943 in Hamburg, died on 24.1.1945
Essener Straße 54 (formerly camp Tannenkoppel, Weg 4, also called "Tarpenbek = Forced labor camp of the armaments industry in Hamburg Langenhorn)
Shura Kotschezeschko was born in Hamburg on November 21, 1943. Her parents, Tamara, née Selensga, born in Ukraine on June 10, 1923, and Anton Kotschezeschko, were of the Catholic faith. Deported from their native Ukraine, they had to perform forced labor in Hamburg-Langenhorn as "Ostarbeiter" for Hanseatische Kettenwerk GmbH (HAK) and Deutsche Meßapparate GmbH (Messap), respectively. They were housed separately in the women's and men's camps in the "Ostarbeiterlager Tannenkoppel", Weg 4. Tamara Kotschezeschko was pregnant during this time.
On the day her child was born, she was admitted to the Alsterdorf hospital. Thirteen days after giving birth, she returned to the Tannenkoppel camp with her daughter Shura on December 4, 1943. Schura had to spend the short time of her life in this forced labor camp. The nutritional and living conditions there were completely inadequate for her.
On January 24, 1945, she died in the Alsterdorf hospital at 9:05 am. In the hospital's obituary, signed "Plogmann," the cause of death is listed as "measles bronchopneumonia" (pneumonia).
Shura was 1 year, 2 months, and 3 days old.
Eight days after her death, her burial took place on February 1, 1945 in the Ohlsdorf cemetery, grave location: Bo 63, row 32, no. 24. Her grave is no longer preserved. At the end of 1959 it was levelled together with at least 30 graves of children of forced laborers on area Bo 63.
