Treasures from the Collections

Two Items, Two Girls, One Fate

Iris Bar-Nir Cohen

Yad Vashem's Artifacts Collection preserves simple everyday objects that have become historically and symbolically significant over the years. The items serve as tangible evidence of the events of the Holocaust, helping to document the fate of their owners and commemorating the victims. Two objects that belonged to two girls tell the story of the fate of two out of one-and-a-half million Jewish children murdered during the Holocaust. They are currently exhibited in the temporary display case in the Visitors Center at Yad Vashem.
