The train went from Horb to Stuttgart where the Jews were then taken to the Killesberg quarter. There, they had to wait two days and three nights in a former exhibition hall for their “evacuation.” They themselves and their luggage were searched. They were told that all their property which had been left behind would now belong to the Nazi state.
Early in the morning of December 1, a special train with 20 locked passenger cars left Stuttgart's Nordbahnhof train station for the east. After three days, it reached Skirotava station near Riga in German-occupied Latvia.
