Warren Green, a former staff historian of the Conference on Jewish Claims Against Germany, has helped develop a Holocaust Archive database used by the organization's American, European and Israeli staffs to assist in documenting and authenticating Survivors' claims. While at the Claims Conference, he was also involved in preparing reports for use in negotiations with the Stiftung Erinnerung, Verantwortung und Zukunf (the Foundation "Remembrance, Responsibility and Future"); and the training of researchers, attorneys, claims agents and caseworkers involved in the Program for Former Slave & Forced Laborers, International Commission on Holocaust Era Insurance Claims (ICHIEC) and the Swiss Bank Settlement Program.
Prior to that he served as the Executive Director of the American Friends of the Alliance Israélite Universelle where he gained experience working with the alumni and the families of former students of the Alliance school network which operated at one time or another in 24 North African, Middle Eastern, Balkan, West European and North American countries.
In addition, he served as Director of the St. Louis Center for Holocaust Studies where he launched one of the earliest Holocaust Survivor Oral History Projects and was the Director of the Wisconsin Jewish Archives where he helped document, locate and salvage precious community records from destruction.
Warren Green, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison; Brooklyn College; and the Yeshiva of Flatbush; has also studied at the Uriel Weinreich Yiddish Language Program at Columbia University and the Jagiellonian University's Polish Language Program. His groundbreaking research on the fate of European Karaites, Krimchakim (Crimean Jews), Judeo-Tats (Daghestani Mountain Jews), Georgian, Bukharan, Afghani and Iranian Jews during the Holocaust has a shed a new and different light on the Shoah.
His familiarity with both the American, Ashkenazi, Sephardi, Mizrahi and Karaite communities and decades of experiences chronicling family histories, translating letters, deciphering fact from fiction, working with government documents; European banking, insurance and property records, enables him to work with you to research your family's origins and to figure out once and for all where you came from.
