In his book “Rekindling the Flame: American Jewish Chaplains and the Survivors of European Jewry 1944-1948” Alex Grobman writes the following:

Klausner realized how urgently survivors needed to be reunited with relatives and he conceived a plan to help facilitate such reunions. His idea was to compile and publish volumes containing systematic exhaustive lists of survivors  and distribute these volumes throughout the world.

CONTENTS

The book contains five volumes with different forwards, bound as one.

Names of survivors are listed under the camp (with varying spellings) where they are housed; next by country or town, year of birth or age, as the information is available. Very approximately, there are 65-85 names per page. Each volume is paginated separately and all introductory pages use roman numerals.

Please note that the camp list on each ‘contents’ page is not all-inclusive, whereas our listing below is meticulously detailed. This makes cross-referencing with oral histories and other documentation possible.
