If an applicant received a denial, it often is because UDSKiOR was unable to find evidence of the claim of war-time oppression. However, this does not mean that such evidence does not exist. UDSKiOR does not contact repositories of Holocaust historical data such as Yad Vashem or the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. Additionally, there are a number of other resources available on the Internet and in libraries. We have seen a successful appeals where the initial denial was reversed following the submission of evidence from these sources.

Please read more about how you can submit a request for more evidence from these two major institutions as well as from other resources here.
