Collaboration with Yad Vashem

New project recording Holocaust victims' names

The tireless efforts of the staff of the Douglas E. Goldman Jewish Genealogy Center to gather information on Jewish families has not only created an astounding database of almost three million individuals, but has also had the vital outcome of gathering valuable information on Holocaust victims. The new state-of-art computer system has enabled improved searches of the museum's databases, including the genealogy database. These latest developments have enabled much better access to the information concerning Holocaust victims and the ability to generate comprehensive lists with the names of all Holocaust victims recorded in the genealogy database of Beit Hatfutsot.

It is of the utmost importance that the names of all Holocaust victims be recorded with the Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names at Yad Vashem,  the Holocaust's Martyrs and Heroes' Remembrance Authority in Jerusalem. The Genealogy Center at Beit Hatfutsot is collaborating with Yad Vashem to ensure that all available information on Holocaust victims is properly recorded in the Central Database of Shoah Victim's Names, in particular for the Hall of Names. The Genealogy Center is providing Yad Vashem with lists of Holocaust victims based on the genealogical information recorded with Beit Hatfutsot by Jewish families from all over the world.

Beit Hatfutsot strongly encourages members of the general public to record their testimony on Holocaust victims. It is important to ensure that no even one victim is forgotten. To fill out your testimony online with Central Database of Shoah Victim's Names – click here
