Remember Me project uses Internet to identify holocaust kids.

Greta Fischer
Greta Fischer, a refugee from Czechoslovakia who returned to Germany after World War II, is the source of 127 photographs of displaced children from Kloster Indersdorf in the Museum’s collection.

I love this use of the Internet.

At last, here’s a worthwhile use of the Internet: help orphaned children of the holocaust identify themselves and possibly re-connect with their lost families. The photos of the 1100 displaced children are heartbreaking. To see them, you’ll need to visit the Remember Me: Displaced Children of the Holocaust page.

The wonderful thing is that, all these decades later, it’s working! One more example of the power of the Internet. It’s wonderful to see this power used for the good.
