 YAD LEZAHAVA of Kedumim

Memorial museum, Yad LeZahava of Kedumim, since this place surprisingly stocks some good printed material about the Shoah, including the Pinkas books of Poland and books on Lithuanian Jewry, etc. Many personal memoirs too. Yad LeZahava, although quite small, works closely with the larger body, Yad VeShem of Jerusalem to videotape survivors' accounts and conducts Shoah studies and exhibitions.

The collection is not on line, but they can print out or view on computer a list of holdings and they have a helpful staff. Hebrew, Yiddish and English books and many clippings and articles. Kedumim is not far from Raanana and Kfar Saba, bus no. 81. Hours are 9-4 except Fridays and of course, Shabbat.
