Damara Pogrebnikowa, born on 14.8.1943 in Hamburg, died on 29.10.1944
Essener Street 54 (formerly camp Tannenkoppel, Weg 4, also called "Tarpenbek = Forced labor camp of the armaments industry in Hamburg Langenhorn)
Damara Pogrebnikowa was born in Hamburg on August 14, 1943. Her parents, Galina Pogrebnikova, born on May 12, 1922 in Molodga, and Semyon Pogrebnikov, born on February 24, 1918 in Leningrad, were of Roman Orthodox faith. Deported from Russia, they had to perform forced labor for Hanseatische Kettenwerk GmbH (HAK) in Hamburg-Langenhorn. They were housed separately in the women's and men's camps of the "Ostarbeiterlager Tannenkoppel". Galina Pogrebnikova was pregnant during this time.
In this forced labor camp Tannenkoppel Damara was born, there she had to spend the short time of her life.
She was half a year old when her father died at the age of 26 on March 2, 1944 in Alsterdorf Hospital. In the hospital's obituary, the cause of death is given as "lung abscess, circulatory weakness." He was buried in the Ohlsdorf cemetery, grave location: Bp 73, row 5, no. 79. A gravestone slab with his name carved on it, but different from the death certificate with the surname "Togrebnikow", and the dates of birth and death still commemorates him there today.
A month after Semyon Pogrebnikov's death, his daughter Damara came to the Eppendorf University Hospital with "rickets" on April 4, 1944, but a day later, on April 5, 1944, she was admitted to the Wintermoor Hospital in Hamburg with the diagnosis of "dyspepsia" (indigestion). During her stay there, her mother Galina Pogrebnikova was admitted to the Langenhorn Hospital on May 15, 1944, with a diagnosis of "diphtheria," and after twelve days, on May 23, 1944, was released back to the Tannenkoppel forced labor camp.
Damara also returned to the Tannenkoppel camp on June 13, 1944, after a four-and-a-half-week stay in the Wintermoor alternative hospital. The nutritional and living conditions there were completely inadequate for her.
Four months later, Damara fell ill again and was admitted to the Langenhorn Hospital on October 5, 1944, with the diagnosis "nutritional disorder." She died there at 7:30 a.m. on October 29, 1944. The hospital's obituary lists "nutritional disorder pulmonary bc" as the cause of death and Blumenthal as the signing physician.
Damara was 1 year, 2 months, and 15 days old.
Eight days after her death, her burial took place on November 6, 1944 in the Ohlsdorf cemetery, grave location: Bo 63, row 33, no. 16. Her grave is no longer preserved.
At the end of 1959 it was buried together with at least 30 graves of children of female forced laborers on site Bo 63.
Galina Pogrebnikova had lost her husband and daughter within eight months.
On November 14, 1944, she was transferred to forced labor for Deutsche Werft A.G.
