Ilsze Lekschas, geb. Jakumeit (1895 – 1940)

Ilsze Lekschas lived in Memel, East Prussia, which was occupied by Lithuania in 1923. From 1925, she underwent medical treatment because of religious delusions. After Memel was reincorporated into Germany, she was moved to Soldau transit camp and murdered in a gas van.
