As has been previously reported, the Bad Arolsen archives are gradually
posting material online from their massive holdings. The United States
Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) has integrated and made available in its
HSV (Holocaust Survivors and Victims) database over 800,000 name records
from Arolsen’s WWII Displaced Persons Care and Maintenance (CM/1) files and
other online collections,
https://www.ushmm.org/online/source_view.php?Sourceid=46460.

The purpose of this feature is to create a “one-step search” platform for
users. You can simply search a name here:
hrrps://masterwww.ushmm.org/online/hsv/person_advance_search.php. If a name
appears in these Arolsen collections you will see the full record and
digitized documents in Arolsen’s digital collections online by clicking the
name link on the Search Results.

Overall, the USHMM’s HSV database contains over 8 million entries, with
5,669,000 of these entries available on the public website. The remainder
cannot be publicly posted due to restrictions imposed by the organizations
which provided the data, but all may be viewed by visitors to the Museum.

GREAT IDEA, PETER!

But the URL is incorrect.  It should be  https://www.ushmm.org/online/hsv/person_advance_search.php

  and the word master should be deleted.

Sorry to say, but for different reasons, Peter’s and Barbara’s provided e-mail addresses are incorrect.  I found that the following e-mail address worked for me, and I found the site to be all that Peter described:

Thank you, Peter Lande, for your frequent updates from the USHMM. I have a question regarding the last paragraph in your latest message about the material that cannot be publicly posted. Since not all of us can visit the museum in the near future, is it possible to know what organizations provided the restricted data? For people who are looking for information about lost relatives, perhaps there is a way to approach them directly and ask for look-ups or help of that sort.
Thanks again,

I copied and pasted the URL into FireFox, and got several citations, the second being the following (when clicking on that, it brings up the USHMM database):

Hi Vered,
If you're mobile - the whole Bad Arolsen Archive including the things that are not online (identical to what they have in USHMM) is available in the Yad VaShem library in Jerusalem, Israel

Freda has made me aware that my post about USHMM and Yad VaShem is misleading.

There are many unscanned documents in the archive. https://arolsen-archives.org/en/ 
They have an online search site, as mentioned previously, but their collection is much larger than what can be found online at present.


Search for names online

13 million documents are now online! You can search for the names of victims of Nazi persecution in our portal. However, please remember that this is not a full search, because many of the documents held in the Arolsen Archives are not yet accessible in the online archive.



And this is how you can sent inquiries:https://arolsen-archives.org/en/search-explore/inquiries/
