Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Authority, signed a cooperation agreement with Memorial de la Shoah in Paris yesterday that provides the Israeli institution with photographs of many of France’s Holocaust victims.

The agreement will enable Yad Vashem and the French Shoah Memorial – the largest research and information center in Europe dealing with the history of the Jews’ genocide – to gather documents jointly and exchange copies of documents accumulated in each other’s archives over the past 50 years.
