Over 4.8 million of the six million Jews murdered by the Nazis and their accomplices are commemorated in Yad Vashem's online Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names. In this lecture, Serafima Velkovich, an archival researcher in the Reference and Information Department of the Yad Vashem’s Reference and Information Department of the Yad Vashem Archives, will highlight the Central Database’s new features and sources and offer her expert tips on how to utilize it to its fullest potential. In addition, she will provide guidance on the use of other Yad Vashem online resources that are relevant for genealogists.
This program is sponsored by the Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute in cooperation with Yad Vashem – The World Holocaust Remembrance Center. It is supported, in part, by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the Human Endeavor and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
