Visitors to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Permanent Exhibition receive ID cards chronicling the experiences of people who lived in Europe during the Holocaust. These cards are designed to help personalize the historical events of the time.
Each identification card has four sections: The first provides a biographical sketch of the person. The second describes the individual’s experiences from 1933 to 1939, while the third describes events during the war years. The final section describes the fate of the individual and explains the circumstances—to the extent that they are known—in which the individual either died or survived.
