U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Database for Survivor & Victim Names
Virtual Workshop | The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Database for Holocaust Survivor and Victim Names
May 17, 2022
Sarah Kopelman-Noyes, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Senior Technical Information Specialist, Names Data Branch, National Institute for Holocaust Documentation
The Database for Holocaust Survivor and Victim Names (HSV) contains 12 million records on people persecuted during World War II under the Nazi regime. It brings together information from the Museum’s collections, as well as from other organizations, about individual survivors and victims into one search tool. This webinar will highlight the many ways the USHMM gathers this data and the efforts made to ensure this data is made available to the public. Learn how the HSV Database allows anyone to search for a name of a survivor or victim of Nazi persecution (even via Google), find information about that individual, and in some cases request a copy of the original document.
This is an event hosted by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the U.S. Government Publishing Office. Register to attend the live training webinar here.
