To date, tens of thousands of artifacts have been donated to Yad Vashem through the Gathering the Fragments campaign. Thousands of people have found the strength to part with various personal effects of great emotional value, in order to enable their safekeeping and to dedicate them to commemorating family members and loved ones who were murdered in the Holocaust. In this exceptional story, Gathering the Fragments brought about the reunification of an object with its owners who had long since given up hope of finding it.
