Jakob: ”I asked the search service in Arolsen 1962 if their registers contained any information about my father’s and my mother’s name. In a letter, they answered that that there are no information about my parents potential captivity, at the same time they notified that they are not entitled to confirm the death of my parents.” (International Tracing Service (ITS) was established on the initiative of the Allies in 1943, as a branch of the British Red Cross in order to search for and register missing persons. The ITS later moved to Bad Arolsen in Germany. Here the victims of the Nazis and their families could search for information about the destiny of their relatives.)
