The Museum's Benjamin and Vladka Meed Registry of Holocaust Survivors seeks the names of all survivors of the Holocaust and Nazi-era persecution, living or deceased, to record their experiences for future generations, assist survivors and their families in tracing missing relatives and friends, and provide reference information to scholars of the Holocaust, genealogists, and members of the public.
There is no single list of victims and survivors of Holocaust-era persecution. Instead, researching family history around the Holocaust is a process of following trails and piecing together bits of information.
The Museum has many resources that could assist you in researching the fates of individuals during the Holocaust. Many of these are only available onsite in the Holocaust Survivors and Victims Resource Center on the Museum’s Second Floor. The center is open seven days a week, and staff is available to provide guidance and answer your questions.
