Names Recovery Project
The Names Recovery Project in Delaware is part of a global effort, sponsored by Yad Vashem, to name the 6 million souls lost to the Shoah. This effort was launched in September 2011 and will help Delaware and area families name those who perished in the Holocaust. David Meluskey, an intern with the committee and a University of Delaware student, will be available to come speak at any occasion at your synagogue, organization or group, as well as be present at any community events.
Please participate in The Names Recovery Project. Help build community, counter Holocaust deniers, and perform the mitzvah of remembering our ancestors. For more information, please contact David Meluskey at DENamesRecovery@gmail.com
