Rescuing the Evidence

David M. Rubenstein National Institute for Holocaust Documentation


The Rubenstein Institute seeks to build the Collection of Record on the Holocaust and ensure its accessibility through preservation and digitization. The Collection is the foundation for education, exhibitions, and scholarship. It also serves as proof of the Holocaust, countering those who deny or distort this history.

Institute staff are in a race against time to collect documents, photographs, films, and other artifacts worldwide that if not acquired now will be lost forever. The Rescuing the Evidence Impact Fund provides critical resources to support this effort and manage the Museum's Collection.

“Those of us in a position to do more to remind the world of the Holocaust have a moral obligation to do so. I am pleased to help toward that mission, and encourage others to reflect on what more they might be able to do to help remind the world that the Holocaust might be not just a historic tragedy but also a precursor to what could happen again.” —David M. Rubenstein
