Yad Vashem received tens of thousands of new names of Holocaust victims to add to its database. Yad Vashem received a disk this week containing 68,000 names of victims killed at Auschwitz, almost two-thirds of them Jewish, from the Memorial and Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau. Another disk, containing names and other personal information of more than 25,000 Jews who were deported from Belgium to extermination camps, was presented to Yad Vashem by the Jewish Museum of Deportation and Remembrance in Mechelen, Belgium.
