The Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem unveiled its new archives and library. The building houses some 55 millions of documents relating to the Holocaust. One-third of the funding for the $66 million project came from the Claims Conference, which used moneys it had received as reparations for unclaimed Jewish properties in Germany. The remaining funding came from individual donors.
The Archive of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency includes articles published from 1923 to 2008. Archive stories reflect the journalistic standards and practices of the time they were published.
