The University of Massachusetts at Amherst has digitized names of Holocaust survivors relocated to displaced Persons Camps in Austria and Germany. Thanks to a collaboration of the Robert S. Cox Special Collections and University Archives Research Center in the UMass Amherst Libraries and Schoen Books of South Deerfield, Massachusetts, they are now available on the open web, enabling families of survivors, genealogists and researchers to have access to the vital information they contain.
Originally published in 1945 by the U.S.. Government as a way to help survivors, the Sharit Ha-Platah or “the surviving remnant,” reach family members around the world.
The five books were discovered in a library by Ken Schoen of Schoen Books and purchased then for his publishing company.
The digitized searchable version may be accessed at:
It is in English and German.
