May I ask where these names come from ? Were these people evacuated to the East ? Thanks.
They come from a variety of sources mostly "personal" testimony from partisans, but also ordinary people. Yes, from the testimony/documents it appeared they were Jews evacuated from West to East (Minsk).
Thanks. Did they stay in some of the camps Chelmno, Belzec, Sobibór or Treblinka ?
They were people with quite different biographies; and from different sources by that. What exact routes they followed can be read in the documents of which many are in Yad Vashem. I don't think the reports are 100% complete, though.

If I'm not wrong, Eric Hunt has shown that Chelmno, Belzec, Sobibór or Treblinka were used as transit camps, even if not to the East. On the other hand, it seems certain that Jews were evacuated to the East, even if not via Chelmno, Belzec, Sobibór or Treblinka. Thus, where is the problem ?
In any case, I would like to know what Roberto has to say about your list.
They were used as transit camps and there is reference made to this in official records, although I don't have that at hand right now.
Most people transferred through those camps, probably did not know they were ever at those places. Just another train station. I don't recall through which towns I traveled years ago, neither.
