Touted as a significant milestone in the preservation of Jewish history and culture, the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research completed on Monday the digitization of its entire prewar library and archival collection.

The seven-year, $7 million project will provide the public with free access to roughly 4.1 million pages of original books, artifacts, records, manuscripts – including many believed to have been destroyed and lost during the Nazi and Soviet eras.
