New Holocasut Assets Database #galicia
Barbara and Marty Yeager <barbara-and-marty@...>
Some of you may know that a new Holocaust Assets database was recently
published by Avotaynu. I have not seen information about it posted to this
list so wanted to make sure that you know about it. This list can be accessed on the Internet at <http://www.avotaynu.com/HolocaustList> . It
includes 29,000 Holocaust era Jewish names.
The difference between this database and the ones that have been previously
published is that the Avotaynu database also includes data >from the
*Austrian State Archives in Vienna*. The Austrian files include all assets,
including possible bank accounts, insurance policies and other holdings.
I would like to encourage everybody whose family was personally affected by
the Holocaust to take a look at this database.
As many of you may know, the deadline for claiming the Swiss Holocaust
Assets is October 22, 99. You can find out more by going to
<http://www.swissbankclaims.com> . I understand, though, that it is really
difficult to download the forms >from there. You can also call 1-888-635-5483
to request a form, or write to:
