Muslims Murdered at Auschwitz:
Ismail Mamatdzanon (prisoner #: R9954)
Nasreddin Tadzubajev (prisoner #: R9955)
Mohammed Sultanov (prisoner #: R9959)
Hassan Mamedov (prisoner #: R9965)
In addition to the numerous other groups targeted by the Nazis and killed at Auschwitz, there was another group who were imprisoned at the camp: Muslims. Between late February and early March 1942, dozens of Muslims were arrested and sent to Auschwitz. They were not, however, targeted and imprisoned for being Muslims; rather, they were arrested as Soviet prisoners of war. Regardless, they were among those killed at the camp.
