Since its founding in 1863, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has helped reunite prisoners of war and uprooted civilians with their families. The World War II resulted in the displacement of millions of individuals. In 1943, the British Red Cross and the ICRC began the work of tracing victims of incarceration, forced labor, and relocation. This effort eventually led to the establishment of the International Tracing Service (ITS), also known as the Bad Arolsen Archive that owns documents from Nazi concentration camps' archives. A Swiss-educated attorney J.J. Surbeck who worked for 16 years for the ICRC tells about its history and workings.
