vital component of our Community
Volunteers assist individuals and families in contacting family members in other parts of the world, who have been separated by war, political events, or disasters. Tracing and Red Cross Message Service, most active during conflict, are often required for years beyond the event. Chapters and stations provide the link in the community that facilitates the location and communication between the family members, as well as reunification in the appropriate circumstances.
Additionally, the American Red Cross Holocaust and War Victims Tracing and Information Center, opened in 1990, is the national clearinghouse for persons seeking to learn the fates of loved ones missing since the Holocaust and its aftermath.
