The ITS was established by the Allies after WWII to help reunite families separated during the war and to trace missing individuals. Located in Bad Arolsen, Germany, the ITS archive contains more than 100 million documents relating to millions of victims of Nazism who were subjected to arrest, deportation, murder, forced labor, slave labor, and displacement. Until recently, the only way to see their records was to correspond with them in Germany (assuming they answer your correspondence). But now there are copies of the archives in 11 countries; the US copy is at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
