World Memory Project unveils first searchable collections

Press Release from Ancestry and the USHMM:


The first collections of records made searchable through the project are now available to the public. The records contain information on displaced Jewish orphans in Germany; Czech Jews deported to the Terezin concentration camp and camps in occupied Poland; and French victims of Nazi persecution. 

This means that information on 30,000 individual victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution is now more accessible to victims' families and survivors seeking to discover missing chapters of their history, learn the truth about the fate of their relatives, and honor those who were lost.

These records are available here: http://act.ushmm.org/search-collections
