The Findbuch makes it possible to search for persons and companies in the file holdings relating to National Socialist property seizure and restitution and compensation proceedings which are held at the Austrian State Archives and other cooperating archives. In addition it is also possible to carry out searches in digitized historical address directories and official handbooks on public offices and institutions.
The great volume of numbers of letters, telephone conversations and face-to-face meetings with victims of National Socialism living scattered across the world and their descendants demonstrate the unabated interest, even today, in what became of family members and friends.
Austrian archives, libraries and publishers support the Findbuch for Victims of National Socialism. The following institutions have consented to the publication of the finding aids, digitized address directories and official handbooks on public offices and institutions which they have made available.
