The Holocaust and War Victims Tracing Center [4800 Mt. Hope Drive, Baltimore, Maryland 21215, Phone: (410) 624-2090, Fax: (410) 764-7664]: “The Center will search the world over for information leading to the fates of loved ones missing since the Holocaust and World War II. Nearly every inquiry that is processed by the Center is forwarded to the International Tracing Service (ITS) in Arolsen, Germany which is the largest repository of original Nazi documents in the world. It contains an index of over 17 million names of victims and survivors—both Jewish and non-Jewish—of the Holocaust and World War II. The ITS is administered by the International Committee of the Red Cross. Before a request is sent to the ITS it is translated into German by a member of the Center’s translation team. Many of these volunteers are Holocaust survivors themselves.”
