Researching Victims and Survivors of the Holocaust


The Holocaust was perhaps the greatest human tragedy of the twentieth century.

Using the example of the speaker’s mother and her family this presentation will look at the surprising detailed sources which are now largely available online for researching the fate of individual victims.


About the speaker: Simon Fowler is an experienced family history teacher, writer and researcher. He worked for The National Archives on and off for over thirty years. Today he is a professional researcher mainly on military topics, the history of Breweries & Pubs and the records of central government. Not necessarily in that order.

He has written regularly for genealogy magazines and has authored over two dozen books. Simon also teaches at Dundee University, tutors for Pharos Tutors and regularly lectures for the Society of Genealogists.
