U.S. Holocaust Museum Launches Project to Identify Displaced WWII Children

Posted by admin on Mar 30, 2011

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has launched a special campaign which seeks to identify more than 1,100 photographs of children who were displaced and photographed shortly after WWII, in an effort to track down their relatives and find out together their stories.

The campaign ‘Remember Me?‘ aims to piece together any information about their wartime and postwar experiences, and perhaps even reconnect families or relatives. Between 1933 and 1945 millions of children in Europe were displaced as a result of the Nazi persecution, and after the war ended, relief agencies tried to identify and reconnect thousands of children with their families through distribution of their photographs as best they could at the time.
