Where to Get Assistance

How do I prove my survivor status? That's a frequent question applicants ask. 
The answer is that databases exist, from the International Red Cross and 
various countries that administered aid programs after liberation. In some 
cases, claimants may be questioned about their experiences by other survivors.
