World Memory Project

Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.   In 2011 and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum partnered and launched the World Memory Project.  Since that time 3000 contributors have contributed 2.3+ million records, completing 18 projects resulting in 14 databases that are searchable for free on  To commemorate this day I have set a goal to complete 50 USHMM – Krakow, Poland, Applications for ID Cards for Jews during World War II (Part 6) arbitration images sets.  If you want to join me in contributing to the World Memory Project look for the USHMM projects.

Thank you for all that you have contributed to this Project!

I have been keying USHMM Czech Republic – Social Welfare & Repatriation Records project for some months now, and am finding it one of the most rewarding WAP project I’ve worked on. There is a range of different types of documents and records for keying – some in Czech, some in English – and you never know what will download next, but I would recommend these USHMM projects to anyone who likes a challenge!

It is unhelpful to portion the images in portions of 5 pages, that way you either only get the first page of the two-page application form (if you have image 5) or you start with a second page. Portions of six pages would be better!
