Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora Victims’ Lists Online

Researching those “lost” during the Holocaust is very challenging.  Fortunately, new resources continue to become available.

Though I am not of Jewish heritage, I can tell you that my visit to Dachau, over 30 years ago, is still etched in my memory as if it was yesterday.

The Buchenwald Memorial Foundation has placed a list of 38,000 confirmed victims of the Buchenwald concentration camp online at http://www.buchenwald.de/totenbuch. The website is in German.

There is also a link to a separate list of Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp victims at http://totenbuch.dora.de.



Editor’s NOTE: The source for this information was Nu? What's New? The E-zine of Jewish Genealogy From Avotaynu, with Gary Mokotoff as the editor. This particular news items was published in Volume 13, Number 1 | January 1, 2012. Past issues of Nu? What's New? are archived at http://www.avotaynu.com/nu.htm.

As mentioned, I personally do not have any Jewish Ancestry and yet value this newsletter for its timely and valuable information.
