Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority, has made available online 130,000 images from its photo archives. The images include photographs taken in the ghettos, during the deportations, images that illustrate slave labor, the camps, liberation and more. "We are hoping that the public will join us in our ongoing efforts to decipher the pictures and identify the people in them," said Dr. Haim Gertner, Director of the Yad Vashem Archives.
