Question about Unfindable Holocaust Victims #galicia #holocaust #records
Two of my relatives - sister of mother's grandmother - were likely killed in the Stanislawow area in the initial Holocaust by bullets or later in 1942, transported to an extermination camp
They appear in the Stanislawow 1939 Census on http://jgaliciabukovina.net/ here.
Aron Leib NIERLER
However, I have not been able to find any record of them.
I've looked at Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Museum, the Arolsen Archives.
I am new to researching Holocaust victims. Is this unfindability the case for some percentage of victims?
Because they were killed in the Holocaust of Bullets, out in the woods, there are no records?
Thanks for any thoughts

We al know the number "6 million". Yad Vashem does not have 6 million records. It may well be that the NIERLER are missing at Yad Vashem
I suggest you write to Yad Vashem and send then what you have got,
