Fragments of Memory: The Faces behind the Documents, Artifacts and Photographs

The Central Theme for the Holocaust Remembrance Day 2011

Dr. Robert Rozett

"I bought this prayer book in Auschwitz for a portion of my daily bread ration. It accompanied me through the entire torturous journey in the death and concentration camps in Germany. I donate this prayer book today to Yad Vashem – as a reminder to future generations."

Holocaust survivor Zvi Kopolovich

During the Shoah, an entire universe was shattered and dispersed in myriad directions. The remaining scattered fragments vary infinitely in size, shape and texture – from documents to diaries, testimonies to artifacts, photographs to works of art. Despite their wide dispersion, they can still be found in many places – government and private archives, libraries, and even in the attics and cellars of families who went through the vortex of the Shoah.
