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.

My chaperones made an enormous impact on my experience and they were all wonderful people and took an interest in getting to know me and help me through this experience. I never thought I could learn so much about my history, myself, my views on the world, people, and how I want to continue living my life as I did on this trip. The balance of Poland and Israel was great as I believe we all needed to enjoy ourselves there although for me in particular I did not feel ready to just stop being sad and be joyous. Israel is a beautiful place… . Thank you for an experience of a lifetime, full of such rich knowledge and information that I am hoping to never forget. I would not take back those two weeks for anything.
