Two Holocaust record collections to be free forever!

Another recent press release really touched me as it makes more Holocaust-related records widely available. I grew up in a neighborhood that had close Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant neighbors. My first babysitting jobs were for Jewish neighbors and my second job outside of babysitting was for a Jewish boss. We had lots of connections in other ways, too. This selected segment is from Ancestry and the full press release may be read here.

Today, we are proud to announce another significant addition to our philanthropic initiative to preserve important records related to the Holocaust. In partnership with Arolsen Archives, Ancestry has completed our digitized, searchable collection of more than 19 million Holocaust and Nazi persecution-related records. 

We also are humbled and honored to announce our new partnership with USC Shoah Foundation to publish an index to nearly 50,000 Jewish Holocaust survivor testimonies that contain information on more than 600,000 additional relatives and other individuals found in survivor questionnaires. 

Both of these collections will be available for free, in perpetuity, for everyone at
