Using Diaries as Primary Sources
Study of the Holocaust in the Netherlands: Etty: A Conversation is an in-school program for high schools, based on the diaries and letters of Etty Hillesum.
“We want to be sure the Center’s work goes on long after we’re no longer here.”
It was September 2000 when Marilyn and Richie Finkel walked into the Center for the first time and became Tuesday morning volunteers. Like clockwork they came, week after week performing the myriad of essential tasks.
Children are the most vulnerable victims of war and genocide. Between 1933 and 1945, millions of children were displaced as a result of persecution by the Nazis and their collaborators. After World War II, relief agencies photographed some of the children who survived to help find their families. Now, more than 65 years later, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is working to discover what became of these young survivors. As of early August 2011, over 190 child survivors have been identified!
In the exhibition “Last Portrait: Painting for Posterity,” Yad Vashem continues its persistent endeavor to restore a face and a name to the victims of the Holocaust and to tell their personal story. Some portraits remain unidentified. If you have information about the persons depicted, share it with Yad Vashem.

My mother and I also spent three long months in a hole in the ground in a barn under a pig. In total, six million Jews were murdered during the Holocaust. 1.5 million were children. Only 11% of all Jewish children survived. I am one of the 11%. . . .
