Alexandra Gorila

We are looking for relatives of Alexandra Gorila, born in 1924 in Shabalyniv in the Chernihiv province of present-day Ukraine. She had been deported to Germany as a forced laborer on May 16, 1944, by order of the Secret State Police (Gestapo), the young woman was deported from the Leipzig police prison to the Ravensbrück concentration camp in Brandenburg. There she was assigned to forced labor in a factory. In early June 1944, she was transferred to the Neuengamme concentration camp in Hamburg, where she received the inmate number 4891. Again the Nazis exploited her as a laborer. It is not known whether she survived the inhumane conditions in the subcamp Hamburg-Wandsbek. The Arolsen Archives have several pieces of jewelry from among the possessions confiscated from Alexandra Gorila by the Nazis. One of them is a necklace with a silver pendant depicting an angel.
