Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Holocaust-period records now available to members of Gesher Galicia #austria-czech


Gesher Galicia recently announced the completed indexing and uploading
onto the freely available All Galicia Database of two important sets
of Holocaust-period records:

- Debica-area Holocaust-period death testimonies, held in the Rzeszow
State Archive
These are testimonies, provided by people who survived, of Jews who
died during the Holocaust - all but a handful of them murdered. They
were gathered after the end of the war in Europe.

We should have mentioned earlier that Gesher Galicia is indebted to
Russ Maurer and Mark Jacobson for their valuable work on these

- Doctors' Questionnaires, 1941-1943, >from the Przemysl State Archive
and AGAD, Warsaw
These are detailed, four-page forms (some with face photos) that
Jewish medical and health-care workers were obliged to complete under
the Nazi occupation. The people named included doctors, dentists,
dental technicians, nurses, midwives, radiologists, cosmeticians,
medical students and others.

Gesher Galicia is pleased to be able to announce that we have put both
these sets of records, with their spreadsheets of indexes, into a new
Galician Holocaust Records section of the Members=E2=80=99 Portal on the
Gesher Galicia web site. Currently paid-up members of Gesher Galicia
(and only they) will therefore be able to view these documents freely,
for their personal use.
