ITS Reichvereinigungskartei Titel


The International Tracing Service (ITS) in Bad Arolsen and the New Synagogue Berlin Foundation - Centrum Judaicum presented today in Berlin a pedagogical booklet about the Index Card File of the Reich Association of Jews in Germany, which is part of the archival collections of the ITS. The publication entitled “Karteikarten und Menschen – Fenster in die Vergangenheit” (Index Card Files and People – Windows into the Past) includes the fates of five Jewish children and adolescents from Berlin who managed to survive the Shoah. Dr. Hermann Simon emphasizes: “This collection in the archives of the ITS, which has only been preserved in part, is of decisive importance for research, teaching and, most of all, pedagogical work.”
