The Deportations of Jews Research Project and Digital Database (“Transports to Extinction”)

Researching the Transports and their Historical Significance

The deportation of millions of Jews from various locations throughout Europe and the Mediterranean region to ghettos, camps, and other deadly sites during the Holocaust was an integral part of the Nazi policy of persecution and annihilation, which culminated in the “Final Solution to the Jewish Question.” The large-scale Deportations of Jews Research Project (“Transports to Extinction”) reconstructs the deportations of the Jews carried out by the German Nazi regime and its collaborators during the Holocaust, and it makes every possible effort to include each Jewish community from which Jews were deported. The research project aims to collect reliable and detailed information about each deportation – its route of transport, the Nazi persecution apparatus that implemented it, and the experience of the victims. This comprehensive research draws on a wide range of primary and secondary documentation. Details of the deportations and the actual transports are available to the public via the project’s digital database on the Yad Vashem website. The goal of this database is to rescue from oblivion, as completely as possible, the Jewish communities that vanished in the deportation process.
