Shoah names database / רשימת הנשלחים למחנות השמדה

One great difficulty faced during the research of Jewish history is that available sources were processed by different organizations, and documented materials were placed in various databases and archives. Accordingly, important notes, documents and material memories are often difficult to find, and access to them requires comprehensive background knowledge. This especially applies to materials concerning deportations during the holocaust. This is why we created an easy-to-use, searchable database in which we collected all the information on the deportees in the region, by using the archives of several extensive public collections.

We edited the list of deportees based on the data from the following academic institutions:

Database of Budapest Holocaust Museum and Education Center

Ethnology Department of the University of Debrecen

Database of National Committee for Attending Deportees

Holocaust Memorial Center Public Collection

Hungarian Jewish Museum and Archives

Yad Vashem Archives
