Yad Vashem UK’s Guardian of the Memory Project


There were 6 million Jewish victims of the Holocaust, murdered by shootings, starvation, slave labour and industrialised killings in death camps. Of these victims, 1.5 million were children, cruelly denied a future, and innocent of any crimes, apart from the perceived one of being born Jewish. It is Yad Vashem UK’s aim to ensure that each named Jewish victim has a memorial candle lit in their honour on every HMD and Yom HaShoah. Our project Guardian of the Memory aims to ensure that the victims’ life stories are never forgotten, and become part of our own treasured family histories.  

When you receive your victim’s name please visit and become a Guardian of your named and special victim.
