UNESCO World Documentary Heritage

The German town of Bad Arolsen is home to the world’s largest archive on the victims and survivors of the Nazi regime: despite belonging to UNESCO’s Memory of the World, it is still not well known. Our history timeline has further interesting information

I asked for any information on my grand-uncle that died in a work camp in Vaihingen in 1945, and got copies of the paperwork from his time there. The reason I heard about ITS-AROLSEN, as it was called, was a newspaper article that showed one relative of a person who died in the Holocaust, who got personal belongings from his relative through Arolsen Archives.
