Stockton University is on the hunt for some very specific information about some of South Jersey's residents who've experienced one of the most brutal hate crimes in the world's history.

NJ.com reports that the Holocaust Resource Center housed at the campus of Stockton University wants to gather stories specifically about how Holocaust survivors came to call South Jersey home. The goal is to create a "digital archive", of sorts, depicting the lives and stories of these people who managed to escape the concentration camps of Europe and eventually settle in NJ.

Stories are welcome from not only survivors themselves, but family and close friends of those who survived Nazi brutality. According to NJ.com, over 200 survivors have already been identified in the areas of focus which include Cumberland, Cape May, and Atlantic counties.
