The e-Guide was developed to bring together the knowledge of various national and international experts. Our thanks therefore go to the many employees of memorials, archives, commemorative initiatives and working groups, as well as scholars and local researchers, who shared their knowledge and were kind enough to answer questions.

The project members would also like to thank the employees of the Arolsen Archives, who contributed greatly in so many different ways to the success of this project. Without them, the e-Guide would not be what it is today.
