About us

This online finding aid aims to assist the victims of National Socialism and their descendants, as well as historians, members of local remembrance initiatives and the interested public, in accessing and searching the holdings of Austrian archives. It is hoped that by doing so, we may succeed in encouraging and supporting people in coming to terms with National Socialism and its aftermath in Austria, both in terms of family history and on an academic, educational and societal level.
