Poland honours WWII victims in cyber space

Breaking News

Seventy years after the eruption of World War II, Poland is paying homage to Polish victims of the 1939-1945 Nazi occupation by posting their names on a vast historical list in cyberspace.

The project aims to bring to light the names of victims -- both those who perished and those who were persecuted but survived -- who were never registered, as well as to gather death records dispersed across Poland, Germany, Ukraine, and Israel in one place accessible to all.

People killed during military offensives, in combat, by execution and those who perished in death camps and ghettos can be registered with the site. Historians check each name to avoid any duplications.
