The International Institute for Holocaust Research

During the summer of 1943, the city of Hamburg was targeted by intense Allied bombings (Operation Gomorrha, 25.07.1942 - 03.08.1942). As a result of the massive devastation and structural damage, many of the surviving Jewish residents had fled to the countryside. Alongside many other buildings, the headquarters of the Gestapo and the offices of the Jewish administration were completely destroyed. As a result, the index listing of the remaining Jews was lost.
