German Survivors in Holland #germany


In 1945-47 the Centraal Registratiebureau voor Joden in Amsterdam compiled a
list of Jewish survivors in Holland and these lists were published by the
Jewish Historical Museum. JewishGen volunteers compiled the names on these
lists into a single database--24,163 names. In many cases the listings
include the place of birth or former residence of an individual and these
include hundreds of listings of individuals >from German cities and towns.

This may seem surprising at first but Allied policy at the time was to
return survivors to the place that they had been arrested or hiding so that
German Jews who had escaped to Holland and survived were sent and listed
there. Of course, this did not mean that they remained there but the list
is a good starting point for looking for survivor relatives.

Please be patient and wait for the list to appear on JewishGen. It is due
to appear before the August conference.
