#everynamecounts challenge 2022
Stand up for respect, diversity, and democracy on International Holocaust Remembrance Day! Get involved in our #everynamecounts project, and help us build a digital memorial to the victims of Nazism.
To help our digital memorial grow even faster, we are issuing a challenge for International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27: From 6 p.m. on January 26 to 6 p.m. on January 28, we want to index 20,000 documents on victims of Nazi persecution so we can tell a part of their personal story.
It’s very easy to join in. You don’t need any special knowledge to take part.
The documents we want to index during our challenge come from one of our partners, the Yad Vashem World Holocaust Remembrance Center. These documents are part of what’s known as the Central Location Index (CLI), a collection of data created by various aid organizations starting in May 1944. The entire collection comprises 1,200,000 cards and 250,000 documents, none of which have been digitally indexed.
Every number, every place, and every name you type in on the crowdsourcing platform will help preserve the memory of the persecutees – and make sure we never forget what happened to them.
