An index of over 14 million names of victims and survivors of the Holocaust is kept and maintained by the International Tracing Service (ITS). This repository was created at the end of World War II in Arolsen, Germany, and is currently administered by the International Committee of the Red Cross **for the purpose of "assembling, classifying, preserving, and evaluating personal records on former persecutees of the National-Socialist Regime" (International Tracing Service, pp. 2-3).
As information was released after World War II, the ITS created index cards to refect what was known about individual victims and survivors of the Holocaust (both Jewish and non-Jewish) (International Tracing Service, pp. 3-4). This process continues today as more documents are released. Currently this index consists of over 46 million pieces of information kept in the ITS archives.

To access the ITS master index of names:

1.The ITS can be contacted directly,
2.The ITS can be contacted through the services of the American Red Cross, or
3.Copies of ITS records from the 1950s can be accessed in the Yad Vashem archives (Mokotoff, p. 20).
