- Edouard Kalifat Association
This association, presided by Denis Sellman, and in which a member of our group, Thierry Lazard longed is involved, attempts to throw some light on the further deportations perpetrated by the Russians who following their "liberation" of the Nazi death camps, segregated a number of the survivors who were then sent to the Goulag: almost unknown to historians, this sickening injustice continued until at least 1956, when indisputable proof of its occurrence began to surface. One of the deportees of Convoy 73, Maurice Hamburger, suffered this double deportation and lost his life as a result.
- YAD VASHEM
Yad Vashem is an Israeli foundation created by the Knesset in 1953 to help keep alive the memory of the Martyns and Heroes of the Holocaust. Former Israeli Prime Minister Aba Eban writes on its web-site: "Yad Vashem is the monument to a nation's grief. It gives moving testimony to the unparalleled violence which affected the Jewish people at the hands of Nazi Germany, leaving a vast legacy of death and suffering in its wake. Yad Vashem is therefore one of the most significant landmarks in the moral history of mankind. It merits the sequence and support of free people everywhere".

Yizkor (Memorial) Books are some of the best sources for learning about Jewish communities in Eastern and Central Europe. Groups of former residents, or landsmanshaftn, have published these books as a tribute to their former homes and the people who were murdered during the Holocaust. The majority of these books were written in Hebrew or Yiddish, languages that many contemporary genealogists cannot read or understand.
Our prime objective is to provide a forum for questions, exchange of information and discussion of matters involved in doing Jewish genealogical research in France, other French-speaking areas such as Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland, and in former French colonies such as Tunisia, Algeria, etc.
To learn more about what JewishGen offers anyone researching Jewish ancestry, we invite you to explore each of the links on the site.
