Finding descendants of relatives who died in the Holocaust #holocaust


Avi Lichtenstein
 

Recently, I found on the Yad Vashem testimonial site the names of relatives who died in the Holocaust (Shapiro family from Starokonstantinov, Ukraine).  The submitter’s relationship to the individuals indicated that he too is a relative.  I contacted Yad Vashem who told me that they had no more information on the submitter other than his address (in Israel) in 2014.  Yad Vashem suggested I use JewishGen, Magen David Adom’s tracing service, or the State of Israel’s Ministry of the Interior.  Because I do not live in Israel, I am not sure if I am able to use the Israel-based agencies.  Has anyone had similar experiences?

Kindest regards,
