Review /Description: This Familienbuch is based on the church records for Moliforf and the nearby villages of Torda and Toba. It is structured as most others with a village history, a surname index, an index of maiden names of wives, and an index of place names. Most sections include an English translation. For two years after World War II Molidorf was a concentrtion camp for German people. When the camp was closed the remaining residents were transferred to other camps in Rudoflsgnad and Gakowa. The camp held between 5000 and 7000 people at any given time of whom 3000 tto 4000 died. The book contains a list of 2249 of the documented dead along with other lists of dead and missing soldiers and of Molidorfers who died in Molidorf and other camps.
