Our Registry honors as survivors and victims any person or persons who were displaced, persecuted or discriminated against due to the racial, religious, ethnic and political policies of the Nazi’s and their collaborators between 1933 and 1945.
In addition to inmates of concentration camps, ghettos and prisons, this definition includes people who were refugees, partisans and those in hiding.
