What do the Arolsen Archives do?

We are the most comprehensive archive on the victims of Nazi persecution. We have been collecting information, researching fates, and reuniting families since 1948. Now, we also develop concepts for research and education work. We use new digital formats to help keep the memory of the victims alive.
