European project

On the basis of the information available to us, we are able to trace about 400 deportees (personal documents, photos, testimonies…)

There is no direct way to find documents concerning more than 900 of them (there are no descendants, entire families were wiped out).

However we have for each deportee basic information that should allow us to trace them: name, maiden name for married women, date and place of birth.

Hence the idea of asking high school students, in each country, to look in their city or their village for the traces of these deported people who were born and lived where themselves live today, people their grandparents may have met sometimes or even known.

Participate in a project with students from 37 different countries.

Either in groups or individually, under the supervision of their teachers these young people will carry out some research that could start in Town Halls or at the local archives, and lead them in places where these lost people grew up, studied, worked, lived. They will collect testimonies, while developing their knowledge about their surroundings, history.

The information thus gathered will be centralized and made available on the association’s website.

Thanks to this approach, thousands of young Europeans will be able to learn about and understand what happened during the Second World War and the Holocaust, investigating actively on facts related to their immediate environment, while having the satisfaction of participating in an international Memory Project.
