Yad Vashem Website Wins Award

30 April 2006

Yad Vashem’s website has won the prestigious ‘special category’ award in “People and Computers” WebAwards 2006 for outstanding websites.

Explaining the honor, Judge Einat Meron wrote:

“The judges had no doubt that this is one of the most ambitious, complex and important projects undertaken in Israel in recent years. Yad Vashem has created the perfect, user-intelligent Internet site for documentation and commemoration of the Holocaust. Yad Vashem's website has succeeded in making the historical events easily accessible, allowing the younger generation to continue to grapple with the memory and legacy of the Shoah. Considerable thought was clearly invested in the planning and implementation of this site.”
