Aging survivors give up precious Holocaust relics

For Yad Vashem campaign described as "race against time," thousands of survivors' personal relics are collected and preserved.

For 80-year-old David Ariel, a survivor of the Holocaust, parting with cherished letters from his mother, killed at Auschwitz, was a painful but necessary duty.
Ariel and thousands of other elderly Israeli survivors answered a call by Yad Vashem to hand in Holocaust-era keepsakes to preserve their memory for future generations.
