As of 12 of December 2010, there are 541 names of Holocaust Jewish victims from Lackenbach in
The Central Database of the Shoah Victims' Names in Yad Vashem.

 276 of them were born in Lackenbach.
 314 of them lived there before the Holocaust.
 None was killed in Lackenbach itself.

From 11th of March 1938, after the Anschluss - the 1938 incorporation of Austria into Greater Germany by Nazi Germany-
the Jewish population of Lackenbach were expelled and dispossessed. Most of them were loaded aboard trucks and driven to Vienna.

Some, mainly those with foreign passports, succeeded to escape from Austria, but most of them were later deported to death camps.
In October 1938, there were no more Jews in Lackenbach. The whole Burgenland region was declared "free of Jews" (Judenrein).
The Lackenbach Synagogue (see picture in the Austrian Jewish Museum website here) was destroyed on November 10, 1938 (Kristallnacht).
There are testimonies of Gypsies (Roma) carrying the Synagogue's stones in 1942 to other construction areas in Lackenbach.

In the course of the war, about two hundred of Lackenbach born Jews were killed.
(see "Holocaust" in Database and Resources and Holocaust Yizkor name list down this page and memorial pages in this website) .
At least 30% of the Jewish population of Burgenland was killed in concentration camps.

In 1940, a "Gypsy-Anhaltelager" was established in municipal territory at a former estate of the Esterházys in Lackenbach.
The inmates, mainly Burgenland Roma, were made to do forced labor and, starting in 1943,
were partially deported to Auschwitz-Birkenau where they were murdered.

A Roma Cemetery was established inside the Jewish Cemetery (at the south east corner).
There are
Roma survivors' testimonies of carrying the stones from the destroyed synagogue to other sites.
At the end of March 1945, the camp's administrators fled the approaching Red Army, so there were never any Roma evacuation marches.
