Since 1955, Yad Vashem has worked to fulfill its mandate to preserve the memory of the six million Jews who were murdered in the Holocaust by collecting their names, the ultimate representation of a person’s identity. Millions of victims remain unidentified. Yad Vashem urgently calls upon Jewish communities to recover their names through a worldwide Names Recovery Project. Unless we assume collective responsibility for completing this vital mission, some of them may be lost forever. This is a race against time, before those who remember them are no longer with us.

Thank you for changing me. You opened me up to something I would never done if I had not done it now. While my grandparents may have said no one could pay them any sum of money for them to return to Poland, I think it’s important to go back and visit, since you can never understand the horrors until you stand in a place where millions of Jews were mass murdered. Thank you once again.
