The first five USHMM collections in the World Memory Project have been indexed and have yielded 1,000,000 names which are available on the web at "World Memory Project". This does not mean that 1 million persons have been identified, since a single name may appear in numerous documents. You may access the names on the web and follow the procedures appearing on the website to obtain copies from the USHMM of any documents of interest. There are no charges for either of these services. If you wish to test the system simply search for Leo Lande (no relative).
The collections which have been indexed are:
Brest "passports" (60,000 names) as well as names taken from the Soviet Extraordinary Commission.
Persecution of Jews and Freemasons in the Ain region of France.
Postwar Czech Ministry of Social Welfare and Red Cross files relating to emigration.
German and Czech records relating to persecution of Jews and deportations to Terezin and Poland.
Records relating to 85,000 persons registered with the JDC in Munich and Vienna as well as JDC programs in Barcelona.
