The records involve non-Germanic displaced persons (including children separated from
their parents after the war) who were in, or came through, West Germany, Berlin and
Austria after WW II. Generally, they cover 1945-1951.
ITS also has a certified copy of a register (given to ITS in 1947) which the Jewish
Central Committee in Warsaw started in 1945 and completed in 1946 in an attempt to
register as many Jewish people as possible. The entries were based on statements by
family members and include those who were in concentration and forced labor camps,
those living underground and those in Russia during the war. It is not known whether
each person had to be present at the registration or whether it could be done by one
family member but each family member had to sign the registration card.
