I found a student it came back as possible I also found family members that came bask as possible, but I can not find anything else. There is nothing in the deportation records or the forced labor records. Does anyone have any recomendations?

Hey this is exactly my situation :)

I've been using this site for a while, and the situation you describe is unfortunately too common.  For a lot of these kids, there is only fragmentary evidence. For some, we may never know for sure what happened to them.  I'm hoping that the Holocaust Museum will be able to add archival collections to this site that might help us get more answers about each students' fate, but digitizing and indexing records is time consuming.  I know that if you want to help the museum with THAT process, you can actually index some of their records via the World Memory Project at

Beyond that, whenever I feel that I've gotten as far as I can with one student's profile, I move on to another.
