The internet giant "Google" is launching a new online venture called "cultural institute" that contains a huge digital archive documenting the events of the 20th century and entering all homes - spectacular graphics for free.

According to a report in the newspaper "Ma'ariv", the project was born as collaboration with at least 18 museums and historical institutions throughout the world, as Holocaust Memorial Museum "Yad Vashem" plays a central role, through hundreds of photographs and documents donated - some of which are exposed for the first time.

Internet museum contains more than six million photographs and documents and film clips from each year, from 1900 to 2000.

According to Ma'ariv, at the Museum, you can find the last picture of Anne Frank with her sister and parents; details of the righteous gentiles as told by grandchildren; A story least known of the Pole partisan Jan Karski, who provided first-hand witness to the allies about the horrors of the Holocaust; story of the expulsion of children from Paris to the death camps; comprehensive information on children's homes for orphaned children in Poland during the Holocaust, photos and articles from the Eichmann trial, and even the tragic love story of Edward Galinski and Mala Tzimtbaum, who tried to escape from Auschwitz and save their lives. Additionally, you can find pictures of the Independence Declaration of the State of Israel, and the prime minister, David Ben Gurion, Moshe Dayan and others.

At this stage, the project works in a variety of languages, but not English. On the other hand, the historical picture speaks all languages.
