The French Ministry of Veterans and Victims of War, through the Directorate of Administrative Disputes, Civil State and Searches, sent to Spain the Official Death Notifications for the Spaniards who died in Nazi concentration camps. This documentation was entered into the Central Civil Registry in the mid-1950s. It was deposited in this office because said Registry holds the records of births, marriages and deaths of Spaniards that took place outside national territory.
The death notifications are bound into ten volumes and organised as follows:
|Book||Surnames by letter||Number of notifications|
The total number of victims registered comes to 4440.
The Rights to Clemency and Other Rights Division has digitised the ten volumes and has generated a database containing the most important details from each notification, i.e.:
Statistically it is possible to establish the following:
|Camp where they died||Number of deceased Spaniards|
Work is currently ongoing to debug the database.
