Yad Vashem on YouTube

It seems like everyone is taking advantage of new outlets online. Yad Vashem, the Holocaust memorial museum of Israel, has launched two channels on YouTube, one in English and one in Arabic, for Yom Hashoah:

The English channel contains testimonies from Holocaust survivors, including archival footage, historians’ lectures on key issues related to the Holocaust, footage from visits to Yad Vashem, including those of President George W. Bush in January 2008, and Pope John Paul II in March 2000, as well as human interest stories, such as family reunions.

The Arabic channel has testimonies and archival footage about the Holocaust, with Arabic subtitles.
