​Did you lose track of relatives during your journey to the Netherlands? Do you want to know where they are?
With the international tracing service of the Red Cross you can try to locate them.

What can you do yourself to trace relatives?
A number of National Red Cross Societies in Europe are publishing photos of people looking for their missing relatives in the hope of reconnecting families.
If you would like to benefit from this service, you have two options:

  • Check if your family is looking for you
  • Publish your photo to enable your family to contact you on the website of Trace the Face
  • Request for tracing relative

In the Netherlands there are 20 active Tracing Teams. They will help you to try and find your relatives. On the map of the website of the Netherlands Red Cross select where you are now. You will immediately get the contact information of a Tracing Team near you.
