Yom HaShoah marks the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and is observed during the Week of Remembrance, this year beginning the evening of May 4th. (Holocaust remembrance event at the Jewish Federation, circa 1998-2000. Jewish Federation of Las Vegas Records, MS-00602)

No voices recorded among our archived oral histories are more powerful or heart wrenching than those of Southern Nevadans who recounted their personal memories of one of the greatest war crimes of the modern world. These oral histories, along with biographical essays and video interviews with Holocaust survivors, are accessible online to everyone as part of the Southern Nevada Jewish Heritage Project

"This digitization project was  initially funded by a $100,000 state Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant and has two goals: 1) to create a digital collection that will provide online access to historical resources about Jews in Southern Nevada and 2) to initiate a strategic collecting initiative that will ensure the preservation of and access to historical primary sources about this community.
