Old Website Town Pages
The information on this page has been compiled by Ukraine SIG long time ago.
As JewishGen and the Ukraine SIG evolved, the contents of the page became redundant with other areas of
JewishGen (specially the KehilaLinks) and the new SIG website.
This page will be temporarily hosted by the Ukraine SIG site until this contents is transferred to the corresponding
KehilaLink and/or indexed into the Ukraine Database. Then it will be removed.

Registry of Jewish Holocaust Survivors
The Registry of Holocaust Survivors is a computer database listing of 100,000 names of Holocaust survivors that is now managed by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM). Most of the people listed in the Registry immigrated to the United States or Canada after the war. The Registry includes the names of survivors who have since passed away. You can use the Registry to obtain basic information about survivors, including information about a survivor's prewar and wartime history, and sometimes even a photograph. The Registry can be searched during a visit to the USHMM. The USHMM will also answer written queries. The USHMM also encourages you to help them to document survivors who are not yet registered by passing on information about the Registry.
Following is a list of names from the Registry of survivors who were either born in or who lived in Kovel just prior to the war. This list comes from the 1996 published edition of the Registry index. Names in parentheses () are previous names, maiden names, or aliases. See the cross-reference in the Registry for current names.
