Rescuing the Evidence

National Institute for Holocaust Documentation


The National 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.
