The ITS collection contains various documents such as camp arrival lists, grave locations, transport lists, prisoner cards, forced labor lists, death lists, displaced person applications for assistance, deportation lists, emigration applications/questionnaires, registration and work cards, sometimes with photographs. The USHMM staff helps people find their families and learn their fate using several millions of documents. The Holocaust Survivors and Victims’ Resource Center ensures that the individual experiences of survivors and victims of the Holocaust and Nazi-era persecution are collected, preserved and disseminated for future generations. This PowerPoint presentation will show how the Museum Research staff uses the ITS collection to help survivors, their families, and families of victims.

Formerly Assistant Professor of Contemporary History at the University of Paris X-Nanterre and the Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales (INALCO) in Paris, she worked for the two French Commissions related to compensation to Jewish victims.
