United States Holocaust Memorial Museum: Read Their Names

The USHMM annual commemoration will take place virtually on Thursday, April 8, at 11 a.m. ET. Sign up for reminders here. We will send you a reminder to join us shortly before the program begins. During Days of Remembrance, we remember victims of the Holocaust, honor survivors, and pay tribute to American liberators.

Submit Names of Holocaust Victims to be Read at Yad Vashem:

On Holocaust Remembrance Day, names of Holocaust victims are recited in Yad Vashem's Hall of Remembrance and the Hall of Names. The public is invited to participate in this ceremony, reading names of relatives and friends murdered in the Holocaust, or reading names of victims provided to them by Yad Vashem from the Central Database of Shoah Victims Names. Those who would like to have the names of their loved ones who perished in the Holocaust read at Yad Vashem on Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day but cannot come to personally read them are invited to submit names they would like read via an online form. A volunteer who participates in the ceremony will read the names at the name reading ceremony. The ceremony will take place in the Hall of Remembrance on Thursday, 8 April 2021 at 11:00 AM - 12:45 PM and will continue, if needed, from 13:00 - 13:45 in the Hall of Names.  All names must be submitted by 5 April.
