To mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2021, Yad Vashem will once again launch the IRemember Wall, which is now available in six languages — English, Hebrew, French, Spanish, German and Russian.
This online commemorative initiative enables the public to encounter the names and stories of some of the six million Jewish men, women and children whose lives were ended by the Nazi Germans and their collaborators during the Holocaust.
Each participant will be randomly linked to one of the individuals recorded in Yad Vashem’s Central Database of Shoah Victims’ Names, which today includes more than 4,800,000 names. Their names will then appear together on the IRemember Wall. Participants can also choose additional Holocaust victims from the Names Database to commemorate on the Wall.
Those who join are encouraged to share the stories on their social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
