Centropa is a Vienna and Budapest-based non-profit NGO that uses advanced technologies to preserve Jewish memory in Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, the Balkans and the Baltics, and then uses those same technologies to disseminate our findings in creative and innovative ways. Centropa is the internet name for Central Europe Center for Research and Documentation, which is registered as a 501c3 in the United States, a KHT and foundation in Hungary, and a Verein in Austria. Since 2000, Centropa has interviewed more than 1,250 elderly Jews still living in the 15 countries between the Baltic and the Aegean (from Estonia and Russia to Greece and Turkey), but we never used video nor did we focus primarily on the Holocaust. Instead, we collected and digitized thousands of family photos. Since 2006, Centropa has produced more than 25 short multi-media films, all based on the stories and old pictures we had been collecting. After showing our earliest films in schools and asking for feedback, we added educational materials accompanying these films.
