Arolsen Archives traces the victims of Nazi persecution

September 20, 2021

Founded shortly after the war as International Tracing Service, the Arolsen Archives (Germany) maintains the world’s most comprehensive archive on victims and survivors of National Socialism. Its records on 17.5 million people belong to UNESCO’s Memory of the World. To this day, the Archives clarifies fates, looks for missing persons, and helps reunite families torn apart by the Holocaust. Support its efforts through the American Friends of the Arolsen Archives.
