The International Tracing Service (ITS) and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) have prepared this searchable Inventory of the Archive of the International Tracing Service in order to provide Holocaust survivors, their families, and other interested researchers with an overview of the more than 21,000 separate historical collections of documentary material that are contained in the archive of the International Tracing Service.
The inventory is based on a list of collections maintained over the years by ITS staff to track (a) the registration of Holocaust-era and early postwar documentation transferred by the Allied High Command for Germany in 1955; and (b) the receipt and registration of additional collections of archival materials deposited at ITS in the more than five decades since then.
Please note that the search engine is not searching the archival documents themselves. It is only searching for words that appear in the descriptive fields of the inventory. This inventory does not identify by name all of the victims of Nazism about whom the ITS archive contain information; searching this inventory for an individual victim’s name is unlikely to produce a result.
