A copy of the manuscript was presented to the archives of the Yad Vashem Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority in Jerusalem, Israel, by a delegation of more than 100 survivors from Cleveland, during the World Gathering of Holocaust Survivors in June 1981. The collection consists of 35mm copy negatives and corresponding contact prints and enlargements of survivors of the Holocaust residing in Cleveland, Ohio. The photographs were used in the unpublished manuscript "Ayduth Lachayim Witness to Life" produced by the Holocaust Education and Commemoration Committee of the Jewish Community Federation.
