The Shoah Victims’ Names Recovery 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 more than two thirds, nearly two million of the six million victims are documented in the Central Database of Shoah Victims’ Names (www.yadvashem.org), nearly two million will remain unknown unless we submit their names today! Please help recover the names of those who were murdered before there is no one left who can remember their time here on this earth.
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 strong psychological 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.
