Extraordinary Requests for Remembrance

Sara Berkowitz

"What can I do as a descendant of perpetrators to ensure that the names of these victims are not forgotten?"

Requests to fill out Pages of Testimony and thus commemorate Holocaust victims are the essence of Yad Vashem's Names Recovery Project, and are dealt with on a daily basis. It is usually a surviving family member who asks to memorialize the names of their beloved ones so brutally murdered by the Nazi Germans or their collaborators. At other times, the submitter is a member of that Jewish community, or someone who has researched information about a particular place or event, so that the identities of the victims may be recovered.
