The Central Name Index is the point of entry for researching the Bad Arolsen archive. The ITS equivalent of a library card catalogue, the index contains 17.5 million name cards arranged alphabetically in 21,408 boxes. The cards record the 50 million documents and other items that reveal the fate of individuals during the Holocaust and the postwar period. The index was assembled over time from a variety of sources. A digitized version has been provided to Yad Vashem, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the National Institute for Remembrance in Poland. It is estimated that these institutions will have a digital version of Bad Arolsen’s entire collection by 2011.
