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 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.
