A Card Index on Jewish Holocaust Victims is now Online

The International Tracing Service (ITS) has published two further resources in its online archive. They include the card index of the Reich Association of Jews in Germany and material on death marches from concentration camps.

What is left of the card index of the Reich Association of Jews in Germany (Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland) comprises 32,264 registration cards, primarily those of Jewish school pupils, emigrants and deceased persons. Now interested persons all over the world have access to these cards. The ITS has moreover placed an additional 15,000 documents pertaining to the death marches online, thus supplementing the first group of documents on that subject published on its internet portal last year. “We chose two sets of documents that, while they are small, are of especial interest to the public. They conclude the successful test phase of the online archive,” ITS director Floriane Hohenberg explained. “More extensive holdings will follow, with which we aim to make documents on deportations, the Holocaust and forced labor available to people all over the world.”

They say they have 30646 entries, which is not very many. They have no one named Pickholz, Pikholz or Pickholtz, though their card index at Yad Vashem has about a hundred.

Through the National Archives in Czechoslovakia I gained access to train registration cards of relatives, with dates leaving for a concentration camp. The size of an index card, the Nazis were so committed to being organized that each card bears the name & occupation of the person being deported. Astonishing. I made sure that all are registered with Yad Vashem.
