How did people search for their displaced and deported family members after WWII? In this new EHRI blog post, Anna Rosner from the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw examines how the Central Committee for the Polish Jews registered Holocaust survivors between 1944 and 1947 - a process that was mainly used to help reunite families in the years immediately following the establishing of the Committee. 

Anna's new blog uses a single registration card belonging to Polish Holocaust survivor Bejrach Glejberman to examine the voluntary registration of survivors, one of the most important early initiatives to document fates of Polish Jews during WWII alongside eyewitness testimony and other surviving wartime materials.
