Dutch Government to Fund Yad Vashem Digitization Project

From Arutz Sheva News (Israel):

The Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum in Jerusalem together with the Netherlands signed an agreement on Monday whereby the Dutch government will support the digitization of the files concerning the Dutch Righteous Among the Nations.

“Providing easier access for researchers, filmmakers, students and anyone else interested in learning about these extraordinary men and women, the digitization process is a key aspect in commemorating the choices these individuals made not to be bystanders,” said Yad Vashem Chairman Avner Shalev.

Over the past five decades, the Commission for the Designation of the Righteous has recognized over 24,000 men and women who risked their own lives to rescue Jews during the Holocaust.
