Yad Vashem has just completed a comprehensive multimedia program on the Holocaust. The program, presented in a double CD-ROM, makes use of a variety modes to communicate the story of the unprecedented murder of the European Jews. Starting with the Jewish world before the rise of Nazism, the program outlines anti-Jewish policy and the development of the plan for the 'final solution'. It describes Jewish responses, the attitude and conduct of bystanders and deals with memory and the impact and significance of the Holocaust in shaping Jewish and Western self-understanding in the second half of the twentieth century.

The multimedia program combines a narrative -- an experiential presentation -- with an expansive database, containing thousands of archival and scholarly items (texts, photographs, audiovisual recordings and film clips).

It presents a new opportunity for people to become familiar with Holocaust history, and provides a uniquely structured study experience in which users explore various aspects and dimensions of this period, depending on their own inclinations.

The project was produced by a team of advanced students of history and literature from the International School for Holocaust Studies, guided and supervised by Prof. Yehuda Bauer, head of the International Institute for Holocaust Research at Yad Vashem. The program was produced at the initiative of Jean Frydman and under his auspices.
