German SIG #Germany SITE CITE - FindAGrave now has data on holocaust victims #germany


Barbara Algaze
 

The data on the free website at www.FindAGrave.com is courtesy of hundreds
of volunteers world wide who post information on cemeteries and the names
and (sometimes) photos of tombstones in these cemeteries all around the
world. It now also has data on some holocaust victims.

I have found 72,743 interments for Shoah Memorial in Ile-de-France
142,106 interments under Jews of Germany murdered in the Holocaust Mitte
Berlin Germany
161,600 interments for Dachau KZ - Dachau, Dachauer Landkreis Bavaria
(Bayern) Germany
985 interments for Theresienstadt Concentration Camp Terezin
(Theresienstadt) Ustecky Czech Republic
13,706 interments for Auschwitz Death Camp Also known as: Auschwitz
Concentration Camp Oswiecim Malopolskie Poland
I am sure that there are others. If anyone can find additional lists, please
share them with this group.

Most of the names have (>from what I can tell) accurate birth dates, but no
dates of death.

It looks as if the information was submitted by a group called,
"International Wargraves Photography Project"
You can read more about this group at

I do not know know >from where they obtained their data.

I found my grandmother under "Jews of Germany murdered in the Holocaust
Mitte Berlin Germany" even though she lived in Wilmersdorf, her last two
addresses were Lietzenburger Str. 29, and Johann Georg Str. 7 and she was
deported >from Berlin with the 10th transport to Riga, on Jan 25, 1942.
