** HOLD FOR STORY BY CRISTIAN SALAZAR ** In this April 21, 2011 photo, Claus Hirsch gestures as he is interviewed at the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee offices in New York. Hirsch, a German-born Jew whose family fled to the Shanghai Ghetto to escape Nazi persecution during World War II, is one of the volunteers entering data for JDC as part of a project which will include over 500,000 Holocaust era names and photographs from the JDC global archive and make them available online for the first time in JDC’s history.
