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.

The March of the Living increased my motivation to respond to claim that the holocaust didn’t happen – I’ve spent time with survivors and I’ve visited the sites of terrible death and destruction. Even though I would have challenged such a claim before the march, now I can challenge it first hand.
