In Search of Lost Memories
Save the Date: Tuesday August 6th! Watch "In Search of Lost Memories", a behind-the-scenes look at Yad Vashem's Shoah Victims' Names Recovery Project in the Former Soviet Union. The documentary film follows the efforts of project staff as they seek to commemorate the name of each individual murdered in these areas under Nazi occupation during the Holocaust – a goal hampered for decades due to the rupture in relations between the Soviet Union and Israel. The film includes moving footage of visits to remote villages, where volunteers conduct interviews with eyewitnesses in a last-minute attempt to collect information and names that would otherwise have been lost forever.
