Happy 6th Anniversary World Memory Project!

Six years ago, coinciding with the Days of Remembrance, Ancestry and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum introduced  the World Memory Project.  Over the past six years we have accomplished a lot.  The projects we have completed are generally in German and Polish but we have also indexed Czech, English, French and Romanian records – we applaud all who have contributed.

  • 4058 contributors have indexed 3,832,159 records
  • 29 databases are searchable on Ancestry for a total of 1,456,335 records!

Currently three projects are available for indexing with more coming over the next few months:

We have made an outstanding impact in allowing survivors and their families to connect with these records.  Thank you to all of our contributors who have spent, and continue to spend countless hours keying and reviewing these records!

I thought that the Jews evacuated from the Lodz ghetto was still a student project. The other project that is still incomplete is Jewish Holocaust Survivors Registered in Warsaw.
