From Numbers to Names

Discover the incredible research website From Numbers to Names which provides free searchable links to collections of Holocaust photos. More than a photo gallery, this site uses artificial intelligence with the help of engineers, data scientists, researchers and others involved in a project to provide anyone with the opportunity to identify Holocaust faces in photos from the late 1800s to the post-war era. The photos are comprised from museum collections such as the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and other online sources. According to Daniel Patt, who established the site in April 2021, “anyone can upload a photo of a holocaust victim or survivor and it will compare the photo to its archives.” Visitors to the site will be surprised to discover this free, quick scan of 34,000 photos in the archives can be done in approximately five seconds.

Also, the Center for Jewish History is offering free DNA kits to survivors of the Holocaust through its DNA Reunion project. Learn more HERE.
