Explore Yad Vashem's collections online

I just noticed that Yad Vashem’s collections are available online, with Google’s help. If you are not familiar with Yad Vashem (I haven’t had an opportunity to visit yet, myself), here is some background information:

As the Jewish people’s living memorial to the Holocaust, Yad Vashem safeguards the memory of the past and imparts its meaning for future generations. Established in 1953, as the world center for documentation, research, education and commemoration of the Holocaust, Yad Vashem is today a dynamic and vital place of intergenerational and international encounter.

I think it is awesome that Google has helped put these collections online. These are critical works that must be preserved as a reminder of what has happened and as a collective memory of the millions of Jews who lost their lives or whose lives were changed by the Holocaust.
