Commemorating Jews

Yad Vashem, together with its partners, has collected and recorded the names and biographical details of millions of victims of systematic anti-Jewish persecution during the Holocaust (Shoah) period. More than four million eight hundred thousand of the near six million Jews murdered by the Nazis and their accomplices are commemorated here. This database includes information regarding victims of the Shoah: those who were murdered, many whose fate has yet to be determined as well as some who survived.

The names of more than one million of those who were murdered remain unknown – and time is running out. It is our collective moral imperative to persist in our efforts to recover their names and restore their identities.
