Millions of people were persecuted and murdered by the Nazis. Help remember the victims – every name counts!

#everynamecounts challenge 2023

Here’s what you can do: The Arolsen Archives are launching a challenge to mark January 27, 2023, International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Transcribe the names of concentration camp prisoners from original documents. And help build the world’s largest digital memorial to the victims and survivors of Nazi persecution.

This is what the challenge is all about: The Arolsen Archives are putting 30,000 prisoner cards from the Stutthof concentration camp online. You can be one of the many volunteers from around the world who will be digitizing this evidence of Nazi crimes during the week of January 23–29.

It only takes a few minutes to capture the data from one card. Please give as much of your time as you can. And tell other people about the challenge too – ask them to help complete this important task.

Get involved in active remembrance of the victims – and stand up for respect, diversity, and democracy. Because the reasons for persecution aren’t a thing of the past.
