Shoah Victims' Names Recovery Project
The Florida Holocaust Museum is partnering with Yad Vashem to recover the names of Shoah Victims before they are lost forever.
Yad Vashem's Shoah Victims' Names Recovery Project aims to memorialize each individual Jew murdered in the Holocaust by recording their names, biographical details and photographs on special forms created by Yad Vashem, called Pages of Testimony.
While two-thirds of the six million victims names are documented in the Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names (www.yadvashem.org), the names of millions of victims remain unknown, and time is running out. We need your help to complete this historic task!
Through a one-on-one outreach, the Florida Holocaust Museum and its volunteers work with local survivors and others to help them recall and record the names of the victims so they will be remembered for generations to come. Each Page of Testimony collected by the Florida Holocaust Museum is submitted to Yad Vashem to be included in the Central Database of Shoah Victims Names.
