This explanation comes form the website:
"The International Tracing Service (ITS) is a center for the documentation of National Socialist persecution and the liberated survivors. It was founded as a tracing service immediately after World War II to help reunite survivors with their families and clarify the fates of those murdered and those missing. Today, the ITS is also an archive and open for research. In the future, parts of its archived collections will be made accessible to the interested public on this portal, thereby broadening the knowledge of these unique documents and the research potential associated with them. At the same time, by way of the comment function, we would like to encourage exchange about the collections – not only among users, but also between users and the ITS archive."
The site is in German, and takes a bit of getting used to, but the results can be as valuable as they are sobering.
