In 2011 and 2012 the Terezín Memorial’s Newsletters (issues Nos. 2/2011 and 4/2012) briefed on the newly prepared search engines for finding persecuted people. These search engines are now available on the Terezín Memorial website. At the same time, we informed our readers of the possibility of searching for such data also in the English language.
Since then three new databases have been added to the website. We would like to single them out for our readers, both experts and laymen. They are as follows:
The employees of the Terezín Memorial’s Department of History in particular were involved in researching and excerpting these data. Their key intention was to make the available data from the prisoner cards accessible to the public and gradually to use other sources, thus eventually expanding the database. In the future, the individual search engines can be interconnected, including publication of the sources used directly online on the web pages. The process of compiling new and supplementing existing databases has not yet been finished. Information on the inmates is being constantly updated, while new databases are being created.
