Since its founding sixty-six years ago, Yad Vashem has become synonymous with Holocaust remembrance throughout the world. It is the ultimate source for Holocaust education, documentation, commemoration and research. From the Mount of Remembrance in Jerusalem, Yad Vashem's integrated approach incorporates meaningful educational initiatives, groundbreaking research and inspirational exhibits. Its use of innovative
technological platforms maximizes accessibility to the vast information in the Yad Vashem archival collections for an expanding global audience.
Yad Vashem is at the forefront of unceasing efforts to safeguard and impart the memory of the victims and the events of the Shoah period; to document accurately one of the darkest chapters in the history of humanity; and to grapple effectively with the ongoing challenges of keeping the memory of the Holocaust relevant today and for future generations.
The American Society for Yad Vashem (ASYV) was established thirty-eight years ago by a group of dedicated Holocaust survivors to advance the crucial efforts of Yad Vashem through Holocaust education, traveling exhibitions, programming for the next generation, and philanthropy. Since its establishment, ASYV has grown from a handful of dedicated members to hundreds of thousands of passionate supporters throughout the United States.
