50 Million Holocaust Records Now Open to Public

Last November 50 million documents from the Holocaust held by the International Tracing Service (ITS) were opened to public access. Now Jewish family historians are finding the answers to questions that they thought would never be answered. An article on the collection and a trip by forty Jewish genealogists to survey and do research in the collection is online at Yahoo! News.

  3. I’m looking for information on Schmuel RUDGIN (or anglicized variations such as ROTKIN). He was born about 1909 in Tavrick, Lithuania and died in Siberia (where he had been exiled) in 1943.
