OK, this is in the “About Damn Time” category. ITS is short for International Tracing Service, which was set up by the Red Cross after World War II. It is the place where people registered themselves after the war so they could be found. But I am not exactly sure how much tracing went out, because THEIR RECORDS WERE HIDDEN, and only unveiled SIXTY YEARS after the war was over. at a certain point. I’m not sure how many people were actually reconnected. What was the point?
This probably happened to save the European countries who sponsored the International REd Cross the expense of restoring lost property to the families of murdured Jews.
Does anyone know differently?
How many reunions resulted form the ITS records between 1946 and 1960, for instance, when most of the survivors where still alive?
