Victims of the Nazi Holocaust around the World ------ קרבנות הנאצים בשואה

This project's mission is to list the names of the victims of the Nazi Holocaust to show that they all live on in our hearts and minds---We will Never Forget, to Remember them forever!

This project hopes also to serve to as a warning to the world, that if good men do nothing, we can all become victims of systemic Atrocities and Genocide.

Please also see the Master Project Holocaust - The Final Solution and add profiles to the appropriate camp and ghetto projects listed there.

El Male Rachamim Holocaust Prayer - אל מלא רחמים, תפילת אזכרה לקרבנות השואה

Dieses Projekt

Dieses Projekt versucht die Namen der Opfer des Deutschen NAZI Holocaust aufzulisten um aufzuzeigen, dass diese Opfer nicht nur eine anonyme Masse, sondern Millionen Menschen mit Namen, Verwandtschaftsbeziehungen und eigenen Biographien waren und z. T. noch sind. Ausserdem soll es als Mahnung dienen, dass in einem faschistischen und totalitaeren System jeder zum Opfer werden kann.

YadVashem

The Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial and Museum has compiled a list of 4 million confirmed names of Jews murdered in the Holocaust. In the last 10 years the names of 1.5 million Jewish victims have been added to the list. Of the 4 million confirmed names, 2.2 million belong to victims whose relatives and acquaintances filled out testimonial pages.

Avner Shalev, Yad Vashem chairman, said "It is a moral imperative, an obligation for us, to retrieve information and commemorate each and every individual who perished."

Yad Vashem researchers add that the main challenge in the obtainment of additional victim names pertains to Jews murdered in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. Mass executions committed in these areas at the start of the genocide were seldom documented. Also, the researchers say, the liquidation of entire communities makes it difficult to obtain additional names.

In general, the ability to obtain victim names rises as Holocaust researchers move westward in Europe. With regard to countries such as France, Holland, Italy and Germany, virtually all the names of Holocaust victims are known and confirmed.

Yad Vashem has stepped up efforts to identify victims on the basis of lists accessible in the European archives. In Hungary, for instance, Yad Vashem operates a major project for the systematic obtainment of documents from local archives, in the effort to confirm additional names. A similar large-scale project should be launched next year in Poland.

In addition to information which can be obtained from Yad Vashem, there is an excellent search engine sponsored by the German Government listing many hundreds of thousands of Holocaust victims of German origin.
