Privacy concerns

For reasons of privacy, we have not included information about people who were born less than 100 years ago, in some cases 110 years ago, unless we have confirmed that (1) they died over forty years ago, (2) they have agreed to have their data published through the “Servitengasse 1938” working group; or (3) they have given the University of Victoria permission to do so.

If you lived or owned a shop on the Servitengasse in the years between 1938 and 1945, or had family members who did, and do not see the information listed (or have found errors in the information presented), please let us know. We would like to include and revise the information if we have the necessary permission to do so.
