Digitization

Digitization of microfilm documents Digitization of microfilm documents

The Yad Vashem Archives strive to provide the public with access from afar to its documentation collections. The primary requisite for such access is digital scanning of the materials preserved in the Archives. Scanning also helps to preserve the documentation by reducing the need for direct contact with the materials and at the same time serving as a backup.

The digitization of archival materials is a joint effort of Yad Vashem's Archives and Information Systems Divisions. To date, all audio and video testimonies at Yad Vashem, every Page of Testimony, the entire Photo Archive and half the microfilms have been scanned. We have recently begun to scan paper documents in the Archives and we plan to complete the scanning project over the coming years.
