Volunteers needed to identify Holocaust Project profiles

+17 votes

The WikiTree Holocaust Project was formed to reinforce the remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust.  The project needs help from members who know of any existing WikiTree profiles for people who were survivors, victims, or parents, siblings, or children of survivors or victims.  We need to identify profiles of people who lived in Germany or any country in which Jews were persecuted during World War II,  If the death date is between 1938 and 1945 or the place of death is one of the known ghettos or concentration camps, or if the profile mentions anything about either escaping or emigrating to a safer country between 1938 and 1945 .... please do the following:

  •    If the profile is open or if you are on the trusted list, put the following lines at the top:

         [[Category:Holocaust Profile Maintenance]]
  • If you cannot add those lines then please contact one of the Holocaust project members and let them know the WikiTree ID of the profile.

Of course, if you'd like to join this very worthwhile project and help us honor these people, see the project page at http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Holocaust  and let one of the leaders know you want in ... hint, hint!

We greatly appreciate all help of all kinds!!!

As part of the cemetery challenge last month, I set up a space for the Garden of Remembrance Cemetery in Clarksburg, Maryland.  I had previously photographed a small number of tombstones, and since six of them identified the person as a Holocaust survivor, I created profiles for theose six people last week and linked them to this project.  I plan to go back and photograph more of the cemetery (eventually all of it) in the Spring when the weather is warmer.
