Since 1955, Yad Vashem has worked to fulfil its mandate to preserve the memory of the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust by collecting their names, the ultimate representation of a person’s identity.

To date, the names of more than 4.7 million victims have been recorded, but many remain unidentified and Yad Vashem is urgently calling upon Jewish communities worldwide to recover their names through the Shoah Victims’ Names Recovery Project.

Please help Yad Vashem to recover the missing names and identities of Shoah victims. For more information contact names.proj@yadvashem.org.il or visit its website at
