How to Search
How to search
It is possible to search for individuals by entering information (search terms). You can enter both first and last name. You can replace national characters (for instance: ń, ś, ć, ó, ü, ä or others) by %.
Be careful with spelling!
Many entries reflect the original spelling in the documents. When performing a search, therefore, it is necessary to use the German forms of place names and first names (for example: Krakau rather than Cracow or Kraków; Litzmannstadt rather than Łódź; Stanislaus rather than Stanisław; Johann rather than Jan, etc.).
