Since its establishment, Yad Vashem has endeavored to gather the names of the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust – one of its central missions. Yad Vashem’s Book of Names is the unique result of meticulous and painstaking work that commemorates 4,800,000 men, women and children whose details have been gathered and uncovered over the years – through Pages of Testimony, the location of various Holocaust-era documents, cooperation with memorial sites and more – which are memorialized in Yad Vashem's Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names.
