Shoah Victims' Names Recovery Campaign-click here to submit names or search for names Shoah Victims' Names Recovery Campaign

Over the past 50 years, Yad Vashem has been working to recover the names of the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust. Today, approximately, one half of these Jews are memorialized in Yad Vashem's Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names, which contains over three million names, pictures and biographical details.

An Urgent Call to Action. In an effort to recover the millions of names which have not been recorded in the Shoah Victims' Names database, Yad Vashem has called upon Jewish communities all around the world to help recover these names before they become lost to Time. "It is our collective duty to help recover their identities and memorialize each individual Jew who perished, lest their legacies be lost forever. Each Jew who perished deserves a memorial, yet most did not receive any sort of burial."
