Yad Vashem launched a project to collect data on Holocaust victims in Ukraine. Ukrainians are invited to fill out a form about Holocaust victims they know of and send it to Yad Vashem directly or via their local Jewish community, Boris Maftzir, head of the project, told JTA. Naomi Ben-Ami, Israel’s ambassador to Ukraine, said she hoped official Ukrainian sources would also help in the undertaking. “We have always cooperated with archives in Ukraine,” she said. “There should be no difficulties with obtaining new information.”
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.
