Yad Vashem and Google Partnership for Accessing Photo collection on-line

Posted by Jan Meisels Allen

Yad Vashem and Google have announced a partnership where Yad Vashem's photo collection --130,000 photos--will be made accessible and viewable in full resolution on-line. This is the first step of brining Yad Vashem's archive online.

To read the Yad Vashem press release click here:

Starting today, a user can directly access over 130,000 full-resolution photographs from via
the Google search page. Two years ago, Yad Vashem launched a YouTube channel to showcase a series of videos of Holocaust survivor testimonials. The YouTube channel is available at
www.youtube.com/yadvashem.

Thank you to Dick Eastman and the Eastman Online Genealogy Newsletter for
first alerting me to this announcement
