German SIG #Germany RE: German Residenten List #germany
Manuela Wyler <m.wyler@...>
One has to know that most of the data in the Residenten list, is a
compilation of various sources. Most are secondary sources, given to the
German federal archives postwar. For France and Belgium it is both based on
compilations ( like the Klarsfeld lists) and reports >from the War victim
administration, based on research in the 50's, the POT of Yad Vashem are
also used. ( but not the POT images)
I used this material while I worked at the company who built the software
and noted a few/a lot of inaccuracies regarding the fate of German refugees
in France. As data >from ITS are included it may give clues for researchers to
look for places they had no previous awareness.
Congratulations to the USHMM.
