We are building a digital memorial to the victims of Nazism. Come and help us – and stand up for respect, diversity, and democracy!

#everynamecounts is an initiative of the Arolsen Archives. The aim is to build a digital memorial to the victims of Nazi persecution.

We have a lot to do by 2025. We want to get closer to achieving our goal – which is for anyone anwhere to be able search the digital memorial and find all the data it contains. This is a huge task, so we are looking for even more partners to support us.

»We must remember the names of those who were murdered by the Nazis. They were people with lives, families, hopes, and dreams – not just a statistic. As a historian, I think it’s important to contribute to the remembrance initiative #everynamecounts.«
