Database of Holocaust Victims

The Terezín Initiative Institute attempts to document names and fates of all prisoners of the Terezín ghetto and of other victims of the "Final Solution of the Jewish Question" in Czech Lands and to use this data in order to assist commemoration and promote Holocaust education. The information gathered in the framework of this documentation project is made available for survivors, family members, but also to the public, to historians and in the frame of our educational projects to schools.
