Following the conversation we started a while ago now about the Yad Vashem Names Recovery Project, we have experienced great success in collecting over 300 Pages of Testimony from Melbourne.
In one instance, a survivor recorded Pages of Testimony for over 40 members of his community from before the war who he recognised from class photos. Through using the Online Database of Shoah Victims, another survivor was connected with the family of her fiancé who perished during the Shoah. Through making the connection, the family who now lives in Israel knows much of their family history that they would not have otherwise known.
Although this is late notice, would it be possible to ask the Rabbonim to mention this vital campaign over Yom Kippur? Your support, and that of the Rabbonim would be greatly appreciated.
