Weblinks about the Holocaust

“Righteous Persons” (sometimes called “Righteous Gentiles”) were those who risked their lives saving Jews from Hitler’s evil “Final Solution,” which is also referred to as “the Holocaust” or “the Shoah.” This site gives brief stories about some of the Righteous: http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/righteous.html and there are some numbers broken down by country of the Righteous here: http://www.holocaustforgotten.com/yadvashem.htm

Yad Vashem is the Holocaust Memorial and Museum in Israel. Here is a link to a pictorial archive showing photos from the lives of some of those who perished at tha hands of the Nazi regime: http://collections.yadvashem.org/photosarchive/en-us/ You can search for the names of victims here: http://www.yadvashem.org/wps/portal/IY_HON_Welcome.
