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 March of the Living is probably one of the most meaningful experiences that I will ever get to have. During our Shabbaton (before the March), we talked about “aha!” moments. At that point, I felt as though I had none. Today, I have so many to choose from thanks to this unbelievable trip. I truly cannot describe the feelings that I had on the trip, but strongly believe that EVERY jew (or non-jew) needs to experience it.
