Gary Mokotoff, a Jewish genealogy from New Jersey, looks at name records at the international tracking service in Bad Arolsen in central Germany.
BERLIN – The International Tracking Service in Germany has uploaded more than 13 million documents from Nazi concentration camps, including capture cards and death announcements, to help Holocaust researchers and others investigate the fate of the victims.
Established by the Western Allies in World War I World War and originally driven by the Red Cross, ITS also announced on Tuesday that it changed its name to "Arolsen Archives – International Center on Nazi Persecution."
The archive in Bad Arolsen says help from Israel's Yad Vashem that documents with information on more than 2.2 million people are now available online. Work is still being done to improve searchability.
Archive director Floriane Azoulay says with survivors to die out, "it's so important that the original documents can talk to future generations."
