Editor's Notes

  • In a Christian cemetery in a Polish village, located not far from Auschwitz, there is a gravestone. The gravestone is located on a mass grave designating the burial place of 45 people, victims of a death march from Auschwitz-Birkenau. Unlike many other victims of death marches, these victims received burial. The local priest, Pawel Risch, decided, for humanitarian reasons, to bury the dead people and to record their “names” – by listing the inmates' numbers that were tattooed on their arms. He asked his assistant to record the numbers on a piece of paper, and then copied them onto the gravestone that was erected.

    If we attempt to decipher the numbers to discover the names behind them, we will find, for example, inmate number 43405, which had been given to an inmate named David Pastel.
    David Pastel was a Polish-born Jew who immigrated to Paris before World War II. In June 1942 he was sent from the Beaune-la-Rolande transit camp on transport number 5 to Auschwitz. Shortly before the liberation, he was murdered during the death march.
  • How has David Pastel’s life story been restored? It was not an easy task to do: Information about David Pastel – his photos, inmate cards and the deportation lists that record his name, - is scattered among many different countries. Documentation regarding David Pastel is located in the Yad Vashem Archives in Israel and in other archives in Poland, France and Germany. This is truly a puzzle with various pieces to gather and reassemble.

  • The Nazis wanted not only to annihilate the Jews but also the ability to remember them. In order to know what we lost, we have to reconstruct this huge puzzle: to collect everything, an original or a copy, and to give access to all what we gathered.

  • This decision by Yad Vashem has dramatic ramifications: The Yad Vashem Archives, contain about 190 million pages of documentation and close to half a million photos. We have over 120,000 written, audio and video Holocaust survivor testimonies, a film collection, a large library, art and artifacts collections and academic publications. This comprises the largest collection in the world on the Holocaust.
