Holocaust Survivors and Victims Resource Center
The mission of the Holocaust Survivors and Victims Resource Center is to ensure that the individual experiences of survivors and victims of the Holocaust and Nazi-era persecution are collected, preserved and disseminated for future generations.
The Benjamin and Vladka Meed Registry of Holocaust Survivors seeks the names of all survivors of the Holocaust and Nazi-era persecution – whether or not currently living –to record their experiences for future generations, assist survivors and their families in attempts to trace missing relatives and friends, and provide reference to scholars of the Holocaust, genealogists, and the public.
The Museum honors as survivors and victims 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. (The Museum’s ID Cards portray the experiences of a wide range of people during the Holocaust. Browse all ID Cards)
