Information on 40,000 More Victims Now Searchable

 

Information from two Museum collections related to Jewish residents of Bia?a Podlaska, Poland, and Jews who immigrated to Palestine from 1938 to 1947 is searchable for free on Ancestry.com.
Thanks to the efforts of 890 contributors who entered in this information, it is now available to Holocaust survivors and victims' family members.
One of the contributors, Rhoda, who helped key information about these victims said, "It is incredibly important for the records of Jews and non-Jews to be searchable —- not only for the families who want to know about their loved ones but to prove forcefully what actually happened! I also believe very strongly that all of us need to remember those who perished because the Nazis thought they were inferior."
