Sources, Databases, Libraries, Archives….

Before starting with “Warlux”, we need of course collect existing sources, databases etc. One website or “database” is essential for our project:

Ons Jongen a Meedercher by  Fédération des Enrôlés de force (FEDDEF)

The association “Fédération des Enrôlés de force (FEDDEF)” created this database as about the forced recruitment in Luxembourg.

This database, built up over the years, includes 19,500 names of people, themes, organizations and cities relating to forced recruitment.
The aim is to provide information about these persons and offer an overview of the individual fates and stories.

Each file contains dates, descriptions and a documentary library (photos, press clippings, videos…)

All documents on the site are free of rights and downloadable for free.

Everyone can complete an entry and contribute new documents or information about a person. For Warlux, this database creates the foundation for further research and the planned “samples” of data and persons.

I already thank the “FEDDEF” and Georges Even for this valuable work and hope for fruitful cooperation.
