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.

I have been completely enlightened by this trip. My whole life the Holocaust was all textbook, and to see it and feel it really made me understand what actually happened. Going to Israel after this horrible week really made me realize how important of a role Israel has in Jewish life and survival of the Jewish people.
