Yad Vashem

Yad Vashem, Jerusalem, is the Jewish people’s memorial to the murdered Six Million and symbolizes the ongoing confrontation with the rupture engendered by the Holocaust. Containing the world’s largest repository of information on the Holocaust, Yad Vashem is a leader in Holocaust education, commemoration, research and documentation.


 Yizkor (Holocaust Memorial) Books from the New York Public Library The yizkor book holdings of the Dorot Jewish Division of The New York Public Library are the most extensive in the United States. In order to preserve and to provide universal access to these extremely important books, the Library, in partnership with the National Yiddish Book Center, has undertaken to digitize the entire collection. Digital images of the full text of virtually all of the yizkor books in the collection are freely available on the Library's website, and copies of these out-of-print titles are also obtainable as "reprints on demand" from the National Yiddish Book Center. Gaps in the Library's holdings will, it is hoped, be filled in time with digital images made from copies lent by other libraries or individuals.
