One of the main goals of Ganzach Kiddush Hashem is to connect the current and future generations to the past. Photographs are one of the most effective tools available, as they present the destroyed world in a living manner, in a powerful and authentic way. This collection contains around 300,000 images from the Holocaust era, as well as images illustrating prewar Jewish life from the advent of photography.
