Dear Friends, is pleased to announce the completion of its most recent update
to the JewishGen Holocaust Database.  The database can be accessed directly
at The database now
includes more than 2.75 million records from approximately 200 component
.All component databases (individual data sets) have a project introduction.  The
introduction gives you further information about the historical background of the
data, location of the original source document, fields used in the database,
translation aides when applicable and acknowledgments to those that helped
with data entry, validation and online preparation of the data set.A listing of each of the component databases can be found by scrolling down the
main search page.  All data can be searched in one database-wide search from
the Holocaust Database home page.The database continues to grow, thanks in large part to partnerships with other
organizations and receiving interesting original research by JewishGen users and
academicians.  We believe JewishGen is an ideal location for the preservation
and “publishing” of these pieces.
