Eastern Suburbs Workshop

AJGS Eastern Suburbs Workshop usually consist of a short talk followed by time to browse resources or get some help with your research. The library closes at 5m so workshops usually wrap up at 4:45.

The subject of the talk at this workshop is Holocaust Records.

Many of our families did not speak of the Holocaust. First-hand experiences were too painful to detail, second-hand information was possibly not reliable – but mostly they wanted to protect children and grandchildren from the stark reality of horrendous suffering.

We now wish to know more – sadly, it is often too late to ask.

Can we find the names of immediate and extended family who did not survive? Can we find out what happened in our parents’ / grandparents’ / great-grandparents’ towns during the war? What records and testimonies exist and how do we access them? What else can we find?

Robyn Dryen will outline the many available collections and databases for attempting to reconstruct your family’s experiences in Europe and elsewhere during WW2.
