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.

As a result of the March of the Living, I have become very passionate about educating non-Jews about the Holocaust. I believe that if I find a way to educate many non-Jews and force them to understand the tragedies that occurred, anti-Semitism will not gain power ever again.
