The German Towns Project (ID: 48805)
The information on each individual varies in detail. In almost all cases, dates and places of birth, as well as dates of death, where known, are listed. (In some cases street addresses were provided, but these have not been entered into the database). Where it was known that an individual had been deported, this is noted, though a check of other material indicates that the compilers were not aware that many persons on the lists had been deported. Accordingly, researchers should always check other sources of information, such as the German Government's Gedenkbuch, before concluding that a person had not been deported.
- This is an ongoing project. As of the July 2019 update, there are 178 towns listed. Subsequent updates will include the remainder of the towns, as the project continues.
- Created from the files available in the Arolsen Archives collection 18.104.22.168 Local Lists of Jewish Residents.
Only a very small part of Arolsen Archives’ collection is imported in the USHMM’s Holocaust Survivors and Victims database.
