Hi, everyone! I’ve added a few new items to the site.
First, I was going through the pages adding some resource links regarding the Holocaust and decided that they were sort of lost in the shuffle. As a result, I’ve added a HOLOCAUST RESOURCES area under the HISTORY section. It is divided into two sections: DATABASES and GENERAL.
Czestochowa-Radomsko Area Research Group, Dormant Accounts Website of the Swiss Bankers Association, Holocaust Survivor Children Missing Identity Database, The Jewish Holocaust Survivors List from Plock, Poland, Yad Vashem - The Central Database of Shoah Victims’ Names, AND MORE…
The Fate of a Munich family during the Holocaust, The Holocaust: A Tragic Legacy, The Ghetto Fighters’ House, AND MORE…
Next, you may have noticed that I added a link at the top of the left column, SUBMIT A LINK/INFO, to use when you guys are letting me know about anything you think might fit well on this site. This just helps to keep things a little more organized on my end!
