The final file

After 6 years, 10,000 files, 350,000 pages and probably 10 kilograms of metal, JewishCare’s historic archiving project has finally been completed.

The painstaking work which required every remaining file since the 1930s when JewishCare (then Australian Jewish Welfare Society) was established to have all metal removed and then appropriate information rewritten on the front of a new archival quality file and then entered onto a digital database.

It is intended that the summary information will be micro filmed and sent to the Holocaust Museum In Washington.
