Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and to mark the occasion this year, Google has launched a project with Israel’s national Holocaust museum to give the public more access to photos and documents from that era.

Google’s got about 130,000 materials from the museum indexed and searchable – everything from visas to testimonials. They might be adding thousands more later.
