Bundesarchiv database: Memorial Book – Victims of the Persecution of Jews 1933-1945

Since December, 14th 2007, the memorial book “Gedenkbuch – Opfer der Verfolgung der Juden unter der nationalsozialistischen Gewaltherrschaft in Deutschland 1933-1945″ is accessible as an online-database at the website of the Federal Archives of Germany. The second print edition of the memorial book (2006) constitutes the main corpus of data. Beyond that the database contains information about Jews that held the Polish citizenship but lived and worked in Germany and were deported in 1938/39 to the Polish border.
The database is searchable by first name (Vorname), last name (Familienname), birthname (Geburtsname), place and date of birth (Geburtsort, Geburtsdatum), last residence (Wohnort), place and date of deportation (Deportationsort, Deportationsdatum).
Users are encouraged to add their information contacting the archive.
