HAI recently began partnering with the American Red Cross' Restoring Family Links Program. The Restoring Family Links Program reconnects people who have been separated and helps people fill in missing information regarding wartime and post-wartime experiences. For example, a local survivor recently contacted the Red Cross about finding the house in Russia in which she was hidden during the Holocaust. The Red Cross has agreed to trace its location so that the survivor's desire to visit can become a reality. The Red Cross has coordinated approximately 1500 post-war reunions in the last 20 years.
If you are a Holocaust survivor or an immediate family member of a war victim, the American Red Cross may be able to help. They have the resources to find answers to questions you've asked for more than half a century. To initiate your search, please contact your local American Red Cross chapter.
HAI is providing the American Red Cross with educational resources as part of their training process. For more information on connecting with the Restoring Family Links Program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
