Part of the Work of Remembrance

The documents in the ITS Archive provide an in-depth look into the extent of Nazi crimes, into personal fates and the situation of the survivors after the end of the Nazi-Regime. In order to help make these historically significant documents available not only to scholars and interested visitors in Bad Arolsen, the ITS prepares travelling exhibits that can be loaned out to memorial sites and education centers.

  • The exhibits are the result of research at the ITS on specially chosen focal themes in the Archive. In these pages we tell you about the topics of the exhibits. The exhibit and the accompanying materials are chiefly in the German language. Only single quotations are in English.

    My beloved father survived Nazi atrocities, while forty-four of his Czech relatives did not. The exhibit shows the markings of my father’s extraordinary compassionate life on the ruins of his old one brought about by Nazi oppression. I’m very appreciative that his memory is sustained in this remarkable manner.
