History Meets Technology: JDC’s ‘Shared Legacy’ Archive Launch

For the first time in its history, JDC has made its incredible collection of historic records and photographs from the Holocaust period available online on its Shared Legacy website.

During this turbulent time, JDC cared for hundreds of thousands of Jews in places from Cuba to Shanghai during and after the Second World War.

Now the new website lets you search a database of more than 500,000 names; and view and tag 1,500 photos from 14 countries. Plus there are new names and stories being added every day, helping the history tree grow and flourish.
