“Where are You?” Looking for Loved Ones after the War” a Lecture with Dr. Debórah Dwork

November 15, 2015 Wellesley 0

At war’s end, surviving Jews searched for loved ones. Where were they? What had happened to them? Individuals created lists; organizations created lists. Lists of those found alive; lists of those known to be dead. Decades before photocopy machines, let alone fax, computer, database, and Internet technology, people looking for loved ones faced many obstacles. Eager to find their family and friends, and eager to be found, survivors in Europe developed their own means of communication.
