Activities centered around “war victims” can be broken down into the following key points:
- (Military) historical research on people in German armed forces or civil administration, inasmuch as they were active on Dutch territory during the Second World War.
- (Military) historical research on Dutch personnel in the German armed forces on and off Dutch territory, inasmuch as they were active during the Second World War.
- (Military) historical publication / presentation work in relation to the previously named target groups.
- (Military) historical research on (former) grave fields.
- Research related to grave history.
- Genealogical research on victims AND survivors.
- Registry and archive research in the Netherlands and abroad.
- Piecing together and presenting concise reconstructions of well researched personal histories to survivors or associated stakeholders.
- Support services during identification processes for various service units at home and abroad, including the reidentification of unknown soldiers.
This service is offered to individuals, organizations, and government agencies. It can pertain to limited service, such as information on a survivor of one of the fallen, for instance. In other cases, it might concern cooperating on a publication, documentary, or large-scale research. Not to mention, projects or activities of enormous magnitude where collective efforts are usually needed from government agencies, museums, or charitable foundations.
