Yad Vashem Name Recovery Project
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 first time I went to the Kotel, in Israel, was probably the highlight or lasting impression of my time in Israel. Since I had not been to Israel before, finally being able to see and feel the Kotel was a very special moment. I had seen pictures, and learnt about it for many years. However, I had never actually had the time to really experience and see what it meant for so many people.
