Henny Andrade, née Katzenstein, born 13 October 1875 in Harburg, deported 19 July 1942 to Theresienstadt, died there 17 Sept. 1943

Stellinger Weg 11

Henny Andrade, the daughter of Jacob and Friederike Freudenthal Katzenstein, was a widow at the time of her deportation to Theresienstadt. In 1941 (possibly in previous years as well) she received financial assistance from the Jewish Community. Before she was deported, she lived in "House b” at Schlachterstraße 47, a "Jews’ house” (Judenhaus). Henny Andrade was one of the 801 (possibly 771) Jews who were deported to Theresienstadt on Transport VI/2. Her daughter Flora survived the Holocaust, and submitted a Page of Testimony to Yad Vashem in 1981. In it she gave the name of her mother’s deceased husband as Jospeh Andrade. In fact, a man with this name, who also lived in the Schlachterstraße house but in a different apartment, was deported to Theresienstadt on the same transport as Henny Andrade. He died there on 22 August 1942.
