The Web Centre also provides a hub for Beth Shalom 'project' sites:
- Aegistrust.org details the Aegis Genocide Prevention Initiative, launched by Beth Shalom's directors in 2000 to identify the causes, predict the development and prevent the incidence of genocide.
- RFTF.org represents 'Remembering for the Future', a highly respected scholars' platform for the development of the field of Holocaust and genocide studies, which has now been brought under the auspices of Beth Shalom."
Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany
"The mission of the Claims Conference over its 50-year history has always been to secure what we consider a small measure of justice for Jewish victims of Nazi persecution. We have pursued this goal through a combination of negotiations, disbursing funds to individuals and organizations, and seeking the return of Jewish property lost during the Holocaust."
H-Holocaust Home Page
"...exists so scholars of the Holocaust can communicate with each other using this innovative and exciting new technology, and makes available diverse bibliographical, research and teaching aids."
Includes archives of all past discussions, review projects, academic announcements, resources, and Internet links. The links are more academic than those listed in the Cybrary of the Holocaust.
Holocaust and War Victims Tracing Center
"...is a national clearinghouse for persons seeking the fates of loved ones missing since the Holocaust and its aftermath. We assist U.S. residents searching for proof of internment, forced/slave labor, or evacuation from former Soviet territories on themselves or family members. This documentation may be required for reparations."
- American Red Cross
A very well organized site including sections on Organizations, Archives & References, Personal Responses, Educational Projects & Tools, List & Conference Archives, Survivors & Rescuers, and The Third Reich.
