Shoah Victims' Names Recovery Project of Yad Vashem
Contact: Cynthia Wroclawski, Manager, The Shoah Victims' Names Recovery Project
Yad Vashem is calling on the international Jewish community to take an active role
in recovering the names of Shoah Victims before they are lost FOREVER.
The project aims to memorialize each individual Jew murdered in the Holocaust by
recording their names, biographical details and photographs on special forms created by Yad Vashem, called
Pages of Testimony.
Although two-thirds of the six million victims are documented in the Central
Database of Shoah Victims’ Names , The names of millions of victims remain unknown, and time is running out. We need your help to complete this historic task!
Over the years many survivors have refrained from dealing with their wartime experiences because the memories were so painful. We have discovered time and again that most survivors have a deep need to commemorate the people who they lost, but if they have not done this yet - they need assistance with this task now.
Through a one-on-one outreach / visiting program, our global network of volunteers work with survivors and others in their communities to help them recall and record the names of the victims so they will be remembered for generations to come.
The resources to implement the project are available on the Yad Vashem website.
