The Museum honors as survivors any persons, Jewish or non-Jewish, who were displaced, persecuted, or discriminated against due to the racial, religious, ethnic, social, and political policies of the Nazis and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945. In addition to former inmates of concentration camps, ghettos, and prisons, this definition includes, among others, people who were refugees or were in hiding.

The Registry seeks to rescue the evidence by expanding its search for Holocaust survivors in order to register them and assist other survivors and their families in attempts to trace missing relatives and friends, as well as to provide help to historical and genealogical researchers. Inclusion in the Registry is voluntary and assures that the names of survivors will be preserved for the historical record. Family members can register survivors posthumously.
