By Dr Christine Schmidt and Prof Dan Stone
By the end of World War II, millions of people had been murdered or displaced by war and genocide. Families and communities were torn apart. Many were missing, and some people’s fates remain unclear to this day. Despite immense logistical challenges, a number of charities, attempted to help find missing people and reunite families. Co-curated by Professor Dan Stone (RHUL) and Dr Christine Schmidt, this exhibition tells the remarkable, little-known story of the agonising search for the missing after the Holocaust. Drawing upon The Wiener Holocaust Library’s family document collections and its digital copy of the International Tracing Service archive, the exhibition considers the legacy of the search for descendants of those affected by World War II, and the impact of fates unknown.
