In the Document Blog of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI), we have just published a new interesting article:

Fajga Fajnzylber: reconstructing life stories from dispersed sources

https://blog.ehri-project.eu/2017/03/10/fajga-fajnzylber-reconstructing-lif…

Serafima Velkovich, archival researcher at Yad Vashem and EHRI fellow at the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw, connects information from disparate archival collections in different countries in order to reconstruct the life story of Fajga Fainzylber from Lublin who perished during the Holocaust in Poland. Her research report illustrates the significance of the documentation of names for family members and the very necessity of international cooperation.
